We know it’s still summer, but we also know that in between the backyard cookouts and family reunions, vacations and road trips, visits to the local zoo or amusement park, etc. that some of you are secretly (or not-so-secretly) beginning to plan for next school year. To that end, Stanton’s is happy to help by letting you know that the OMEA Concert Band committee met at the end of June, and has chosen the pieces for the 2012 required adjudication lists. You can view and listen to the works here. Please remember that we provide all the audio that we have; if there is no icon next to an item, we unfortunately do not have a recording of it.
In other concert band news, we have upgraded and expanded the listing of titles in the Marches section of the concert band site. In the coming months we plan to do the same type of upgrade for the Pop/Novelty, Christmas/Holiday, and Solo/Section/Ensemble Features sections as well. Also, we will be announcing our Top Choices for Young Bands (grades 0.5-2.5) soon, so check back often. A tab featuring these titles will be added to the Concert Band webpage in addition to our promotional mailing hitting your mailbox at the beginning of the school year.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the rest of your summer! Now it’s off to write-up the Top Choices for Young Band and begin listening to the new grade 3+ titles so we can make even more recommendations for a successful school year. Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
