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&produ…
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&produ…
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!!!
