Journey Down Niagara Composed by Christopher Tucker. For Concert Band. Published by Southern Music Co Tx. (Catalog # 03778935, UPC: 884088789428)

While kept simple rhythmically and range-wise the symphonic-style writing of this piece will make your young band sound much more advanced. Teach your students about programmatic music by effectively depicting the grandeur of experiencing various facets of Niagara Falls including the Maid of the Mist, white water walk, and journey behind the falls. The extensive use of percussion (timpani, tam-tam, suspended cymbal, bells and chimes) really makes this piece effective and presents a great opportunity to teach students to play these instruments. It makes a great history/geography tie-in as well as an optional piece for junior high contest! (3:45)
