Forever the patriot, John Philip Sousa composed what may be his most programmatic march to honor World War I shipbuilders.  Many sounds typical of early 20th century shipbuilding are featured including the sound of sirens, hammering, anvils and riveting machines.  A delightful and stylish march with some very unique features!

Jacques Offenbach's operetta Voyage to the Moon tells the enchanting story of a prince that sets out on an adventure to travel to the moon. Premiered in Paris in October of 1875, the production was loosely based on the popular Jules Verne novel From the Earth to the Moon and spared no expense in making it a major theatrical event. This lively and exuberant overture contains various themes from the operetta including a beautifully lyric horn solo before concluding with a brilliant cancan-like presto that Offenbach is famous for. The musical flair and dance-like exuberance brilliantly reflect the grand spectacle of the stage presentation.

A great entertaining and educational addition to any elementary band program.

We Wish You a Coolcat Christmas is a fun little arrangement for very young players, another in the continuing series from Gary P. Gilroy that gives young band students a fun holiday selection while developing their skills. The percussion parts contain several optional parts in case there are plenty of players, and carefully chosen notes and rhythms make the work very achievable while featuring virtually all sections of the band on the melody at one point or another.

Commissioned to commemorate its 20th anniversary season, this work was written for the Nebraska Wind Symphony, Omaha's community band, in 1997. It is in traditional overture form, with a bold introductory theme in the horns answered by the trumpets. The material that follows presents the main theme in solo voices followed by the entire band. Contrasting material follows, leading to a recapitulation and eventually to a jubilant coda. While not intentionally programmatic, the title of the work does reflect the band's geographic location.

Commissioned by the East Stroudsburg Area School District, this work displays the effort and determination it must have taken to establish this community in the Pocono mountains with wall upon wall of rock to be blasted and great masses of earth to be moved. It opens with a broad, somewhat dissonant statement representing the settlers' first intimidating encounter with the mountain, followed by a faster, insistent theme as the area is settled and developed. An impressive work for young bands that makes us aware that truly great things are done "when men and mountains meet."

Here is a piece certain to be a success! It is so musical it will be enjoyed by good high school, college, and adult bands; yet it is easy enough that a good junior high or middle school band can be successful with it. Employing a joyous, rhythmic triple meter, the piece gets off to a frollicking good start. The opening section leads to a beautiful, slower, melodic section, and the work concludes with vigor and vitality as it romps to an exciting conclusion.
