** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Keys: c minor, Eb Major - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: quarter, 8th, and 16th notes; dotted quarter-8th note pattern; 8th-2 16th note pattern
Teaching Concepts: related major & minor keys, slur vs tongue, staccato, style & tempo changes

Beginning with lyrical, exposed lines in individual sections, the piece builds toward the rhythmic full ensemble section. Auxillary percussion (wind chimes, triangle, finger cymbals) adds plenty of color.
