Concert collections are a great way to add a lot of titles to your library, and get some real bang for your budget buck. Alfred Publishing has just released a whole new series of concert collections called Accent on Performance collecting the beginning band arrangements from the Accent on Achievement band series written and arranged by John O’Reilly and Mark Williams. There are 5 series collected by style and theme, (Concert Favorites Collection, Light Concert Collection, March Collection, Holiday Collection, and Classical Collection), each featuring 22 titles – now that’s some bang for your buck! Being correlated with the Accent on Achievement band method, the arrangements are fun and educationally sound, and range in difficulty from grade 0.5-1.5. Click on each series below to see the instrumentation, and visit Stanton’s Concert Band page to find more fantastic concert collections!
