Product Description

Sugar Creek Overture Composed by Robert Sheldon. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 26804, UPC: 038081305844)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **
Keys: Bb, Eb - Meter: 4/4
Rhythms: basic half, quarter, and 8th note groupings; 16th notes in snare drum
Teaching Concepts: syncopation, dynamics, slur vs tongue, accidentals, key & tempo changes, D.C. al Coda

This traditional sounding overture for young band is perfect for concert or contest. The lively, rhythmic A-section with lyrical obbligato in the upper woodwinds is contrasted by the flowing melody and interesting harmonies of the middle section. A percussion break marks the return of the A-section that leads to the energetic ending. A great piece to reinforce basics of key, form, tempo and articulation! (3:20)
