Must-Hear New Concert Band Pieces

As our band staff was checking out the hundreds of new titles for concert band this year, we came across some fantastic arrangements that we’re excited to share!  From the bold fanfare Carnegie Anthem to the dizzying intensity of Vertigo, the triumphal Aces High from Battle of Britain to the uplifting spirit of An Impulse to Soar, the epic vastness of Stardance to the hip, Cool Jazz sound of Legends of Jazz, these are arrangements you just can’t miss!  Of course, they comprise part of Stanton’s Staff Selections for high school band for the 2012-13 school year – to see the complete list of our Staff Selections for this year, click here.  If you also teach beginning or middle school bands, check out our Must-Hear Young Band titles, and keep following the Stanton’s blog for more new concert band features.  Happy Listening!
