Complete Concert Band Works


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.

Whiplash  is a piece written for young band that explores rhythmic and motivic development in a thrilling and exciting manner. The title has a double meaning, referring first to the breakneck tempo, and second to the sharp report of the whipcrack through the piece. The combination of rhythm, energy, and changing meters working together make this a thoroughly exhilarating experience for students, conductors and audience!

It is easy to imagine the quiet, beautiful river, with its great trees and lush vegetation, flowing downstream. This music depicts a fascinating journey, at times gaining momentum as the stream twists through the various bends, and increasing or decreasing in speed as the river channel gets deeper or shallower, or gets wider or narrower. A beautiful, romantic journey that eventually ends as serenely as it began.

Uplifting and inspiring, this work pays tribute to the promise and possibilities of tomorrow.  In one aspect the title refers to the expansive horizon of the physical world; on a more personal level, it alludes to the wide horizon we see as the promise of our future.  An opening fanfare is developed through driving rhythmic figures, which is finally fulfilled in the work's broad, uplifting conclusion.

Wild Wyatt! was written as the second composition of a two-part series. The first in the series, Sand Castles,was originally titled Sand Castles for Noah, and was written by Dr. Gilroy for his godson, Noah Price. He then decided that it also might be fun to compose a fun tune for Noah's little brother, Wyatt, who is as wild as they come! With his long, wild and blazing red hair, Wyatt is one of the most intense and energetic youngsters the composer has ever known. The result is a concert band work with great passion, intense energy, and wild interruptions, well-suited to be called Wild Wyatt!

Windy City Holiday was composed specifically for the Fresno State Wind Orchestra for their performance at Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Illinois for the Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival. The composer, Gary P. Gilroy, serves as the Director of Bands at Fresno State and conductor of the university's premiere wind band, the Fresno State Wind Orchestra and Dr. Gilroy wrote this work in honor of the students who raised the funding needed to be a part of the Festival. The group took a five-day trip to Chicago and as such, had a "Holiday" of sorts in the famous Windy City with Dr. Gilroy on his first major trip as the Director of Bands with the Wind Orchestra. The work is one of the more challenging compositions Gilroy has written in some time and he wanted to compose an exciting and energetic opener for this historic concert. He also wanted the work to represent the fun and excitement his students would be exposed to in Chicago so it was important that the opener be playful and light at times.

Almost everyone can think back on a winter scene, when it was really cold outside, and when something really warm happened that made it a very special occasion. This "winter memory" becomes a part of the essence of who and what we are, permanently established in our mind's eye, providing warm memories for many years to come.

Experience a side of Sousa most people aren't aware of with this very entertaining ragtime-style piece subtitled Dance Hilarious. Ever the consummate showman, Sousa wrote several works in this style which was very popular with audiences at that time. Written in 1912 for a European concert tour, it is every bit as fresh and entertaining with audiences today as it was then.

The Ritual of the Wolf was an important winter ceremony of the native people of the Pacific Northwest, inspired by their belief in the wolf as a supernatural creature.  In this evocative work, the sound of tribal drums recreates the atmosphere of the solemn ceremony. Dynamic wind parts and handclapping impart a supernatural feeling as the work builds to its powerful conclusion.

In 1881, after being named conductor of the United States Marine Band, Sousa composed six new marches to add to the bands repertoire. One of them, Wolverine March, was "respectfully dedicated to His Excellency Hon. David H. Jerome, Governor of Michigan, and Staff." Lively, bright, and stylish, its tuneful quality makes it a natural march addition to concert band programs. As an additional note, Sousa wrote another march in 1926 which he called The Pride of the Wolverines; and while the titles are similar, they are distinctly separate marches and should not be confused with each other.

The Wooden Clock was composed for students in the early stages of musical development and employs basic rhythms and techniques in a creative and fun manner. Keeping time as a musician is essential, and this clever work reminds young musicians of that important responsibility in music making. Wood blocks are also used to mimic the ticking of a clock, and the entire band gets involved as they whisper "tick, tock, tick, tock" in several places.

Several teaching opportunities are presented in this concert opener and the unison rhythms make it an excellent piece for inexperienced bands. Each wind player must play eighth notes; however, the eighth notes are always on consecutive pitches, thus making the piece accessible to beginners. It also contains a first and second ending, accents, and several dynamic changes as well as harmonies that are very basic and easily obtainable for young musicians.
