Friday, November 8, 2019

Hello Students and Parents,

I am so proud of our incredible first concert! You all practiced hard and your work spoke for itself. Great job! Here are my selections for our 2nd concert:

Troika: This piece is by Russian composer, Prokofiev and has amazing special effect pizzicato and catchy melodies. Violas have a big soli section! Try listening to this video while watching as the notes on your part go by.  https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/media-player.jsp?&type=audio&produc...

Ashokan Farewell: The quintessential American Folk fiddle piece. Featured in the Ken Burns Documentary The Civil War. https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/media-player.jsp?&type=audio&produc...

Legend of the Ghost Stallion: Composer Richard Meyer re-imagines the folk song, All the Pretty Horses. This song is an ode to the Old West and contains solos! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=horpO1KbPLo

I will provide hard copies of the music at our rehearsal. I am looking forward to another great concert!!!
