Overture 1812 Arranged by Story/Smith. For Concert Band. Published by Belwin Mills Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 38327, UPC: 038081436470)

Tchaikovsky s "Overture 1812" is one of the most widely recognizable works in all of music. A bold musical statement, it was composed in 1880 to commemorate the Russian victory over Napoleon s army in 1812. Scored by Michael Story and Robert Smith, this rendition is a perfect fit for the end of the second year of instruction. The characteristic melody builds to a dramatic punctuated conclusion.
