6. MUSIC FOR WOODWIND, BRASS AND PERCUSSION
Symphonic Wind Band & Square-dance Caller. Duration: c. 8’00”.
[Moderately difficult] Three melodic and foot-tapping movements:
1. ‘Shades of Parades’. A tribute to Charles Ives, with several bands appearing and simultaneously playing different marches.
2. ‘Meanwhile . . .’ Resting under the night-time prairie sky, the band hums a well-known western melody.
3. ‘Lowdown Hoedown’. The caller encourages the dancers to take the floor for increasingly bizarre antics.
