Product Description

Housetop Variations Arranged by Bill Calhoun. For Concert Band. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # YPS71, UPC: 798408068059)

** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2008 **
Key: Eb - Meters: 4/4, 3/4
Rhythms: 8th-2 16th note pattern, basic 8th & 16th note groupings

One of the most original pieces for young band that is ideal for introducing students to theme and variations. After beginning with an introduction and straight-forward setting, the piece moves through minor mode, a reharmonization, some meter/style changes including a 3/4 waltz-type section, and a Sleigh Ride-style drive to the end. Plenty of fun and musically interesting!
