Product Description

African Celebration Composed by Justin Harden. For Concert Band. Published by Rws Music Company. (Catalog # RWS-1606-00, UPC: RWS-1606-00)

** Stanton’s Signature Selection – 2016 **
The percussion section sets the groove for this joyous, dance-like number from Justin Harden.  Syncopated shekere, marimba, and a heartbeat-like bass drum propel the groove while vocal-style melodies (limited range; tied quarter to dotted 8th-2 16 notes) float over open harmonies and dynamic swells that paint a portrait of an African savannah full of roaming ostrich, zebra, gazelles, and more!  (2:18)
