Product Description

Glacier Canyon Composed by Mike Forbes. For Concert Band. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # YPS173, UPC: 680160901586)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2016 **
Written in honor of a prominent Wisconsin music educator, this work doubles as a programmatic concert work.  Opening with a slow building, moving lyrical introduction (students must count to not move on rhythms too soon), the piece works into an exuberant, western flavored theme full of 8th, 16th note, and syncopated rhythms, open harmonies, and a little 3 over 4.  Low winds get their chance to shine, as well.  Moving naturally into a flowing middle section that uses legato elements from the main theme, Forbes then transitions to a recap before the energetic, syncopated ending.  (4:27)
