Salute America!

Let your concert band show pride in their country with one of these great new arrangements – perfect for your spring or summer concert, or any patriotic occasion!

Aces High
Ron Goodwin, arr. Larry Daehn
Grade 3.5
Aviation history honors the flying aces of the Battle of Britain, as does this stalwart march/movie theme, splendidly executed with powerful, heroically flowing themes laced with spirited woodwind ostinati and triumphant fanfares.

Suite for Band: New England Sketches
Gene Milford
Grade 3.5
A great descriptive suite with outstanding original music by Gene Milford interspersed with familiar old tunes. A masterwork!

The Blue and the Gray
Clare Grundman, arr. Robert Longfield
Grade 3
Published in 1961 commemorating 100 years after the start of the Civil War, Clare Grundman’s classic work has become a staple in the repertoire. Robert Longfield’s adaptation for younger bands maintains the character of the original as well as all of the tunes, but in a shorter and more concise setting.
