Dear ConCert BanD DireCtor,

It is a joy to present the new Belwin and Belwin Pop concert band compositions and arrangements for the 2010­2011 school year. You'll be pleased to know that we've prepared an mp3 CD for your consideration, which now permits us to include full-length recordings in this promotion for the first time ever! Of course, you still have the option of hearing these and thousands of other full-length streaming recordings at alfred.com/downloads, or purchase a copy of a full-length mp3 recording for yourself. Additionally, it is also my pleasure to report that many of these new works will be joining the hundreds of other Belwin and Alfred performance pieces currently in the SmartMusic library. Our outstanding team of educational composers have once again provided a wide array of original contest and festival pieces, arrangements of folk and classical pieces, and a variety of pop choices (including tunes from the hottest bands on the air, classic rock, movie film scores, and from the Broadway stage and television), all arranged to our industrystandard series guidelines. Combined with great teaching and conducting skills, your careful choices will help motivate students and lead to higher retention, better technique, enhanced sight-reading skills, and stronger musicianship. In this promotion, tracks 2­63 are geared toward middle, junior high and elementary schools (through grade 2½). From track 64 on, works are prepared for high school, college and community bands (all grade 3 and above). Don't miss the two new works in the Belwin Classic Band series and the new additions to the Donald Hunsberger Wind Library, all at a variety of difficulty levels (grade 3 and higher). 2010 also marks the completion of Leroy Anderson's Irish Suite for concert band with the final three movements arranged and reengraved with full scores. Our HotPops series, at the grade 2 to 2½ level, remains extremely popular. Since these works are not included in this promotion, please be sure to join our email list for notification about these and other midseason releases throughout the school year. I'm confident you're going to find our Belwin and Belwin Pop concert band selections an invaluable asset for your instructional and programming needs at every level, and for every concert band ensemble. We extend our best wishes for a successful and musical school year.

Solemn Procession is from the second symphony of Ralph Vaughan Williams, which he initially titled "A London Symphony." Dominating the fourth movement is a noble principal theme, reminiscent of the grand tradition of the British concert march which is the inspiration for this stunning Douglas Wagner arrangement. A charming program work that will foster your instruction of legato tonguing. (3:37)

trafalgar square · Grade 2

By Jack Bullock

(00-32492) ..................................................... $55.00

Enjoy all the regal stature and with grandiose, noble energy in the original work from the pen of Jack Bullock. Inspired by the Trafalgar Square in London, the contrasting styles will certainly foster the imagination of your students and audience alike while affording each section in your young band to flourish. A grand musical tribute to this grand city. (2:56)

Musically demonstrating the wide variety of park activities available, this piece begins with a furious initial statement that is immediately followed by a somber musical theme. The work develops through a variety of timbres and styles building to a dramatic conclusion. A wonderful choice for concert or contest performance! (4:18)

With the energy of an old-fashioned "hoedown," this work is dedicated to those who fought to settle and develop the lands west of the Mississippi. The driving bold theme is interrupted with a charming chorale-like section but builds to a dramatic conclusion. Superb program music for concert and contest! (2:40)

splendor on the wing · Grade 2

By Victor López

(00-32490) ..................................................... $55.00

Inspired by the nearly 50 million birdwatchers, this original composition is anything but flighty. Elegant melodies intertwined with pulsating rhythmic drive will capture the imagination of performers and audiences. A soaring choice suitable for concert or contest programming. (5:04)

Defined, "to oppose a challenge or standing in the way of opposition." In general usage it insinuates that this can likely be resolved and not as serious as a "fight" or "war." In this music, the composer suggests that a confrontation could be described as a nonharmonic discord which is quickly changed to a pleasing resolution. Energetic percussion contributions enhance this bold new contemporary composition. (5:00)

Dedicated to a principal in celebration of his support to the school music program. This original work gleefully demonstrates that dedication with interesting rhythmic flairs intertwined with flowing melodic lines. The work musically depicts the principal's motto, "work hard, make friends and have fun!" (4:24)

tracK 5

the conquest of genghis Khan Grade 2

By Michael Story

(00-32486) ..................................................... $55.00

This dramatic original overture will whisk your students and listeners to the year 1223 A.D. Musically depicting the legendary story, this conquest begins with a beautiful flute melody representing the young girl who alerted her village of Khan's army invading. Full of emotion and vivid musical images, this is a wonderful contribution to the young band literature. (2:50)

The term "chasing Orion" refers to the practice of celestial navigation, or "sailing by the stars." It was inspired by the rich early history of maritime sailing and the commercial shipping industry. After traveling to distant and exotic lands, the fast clipper ships raced toward home, their holds bursting with grain, wool, spices, gold, and other treasures. Catapulted forward by the "roaring forties" wind currents, the sleek and elegant sailing ships swept around the everdangerous Cape Horn as they navigated by the stars, "chasing Orion." A dramatic new addition to young band literature! (2:58)

Our great nation was built north to south using the mighty Mississippi as the pathway. Using 1,800 miles of navigable waterway, the people and their commerce and culture moved freely. Come with us as we investigate this majestic river, from its beginnings as a small, clear stream in northern Minnesota to the great cities along its banks as it flows southward. You'll be charmed and fascinated by this marvelous scoring. (4:22)

March Mania! · Grade 2

Various, arr. Michael Story

(00-BD9760) .................................................. $55.00

"Forward . . . march!" Since the first band was formed, and all through the ages, those musical aggregations have been identified with (what else?) marches, of course! Michael Story chooses some great ones that every audience can hum or whistle for this wellseasoned helping of the best marches ever. `Right, left, right, left . . . ' may it never end! (2:54)

Words & music by Steve Winwood, Muff Winwood, & Spencer Davis, arr. Michael Story

As a musical testament to the shared beliefs that we as Americans hold dear, this montage celebrates our democratic way of life while in the same way reflects on the high price that we as a nation must pay in order to maintain these treasured freedoms. Titles: The Star-Spangled Banner · America, the Beautiful · America (My Country `Tis of Thee) · The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Can be performed with your young band only or with optional SATB choir (00-33016), 3-part mixed choir (00-33017), or 2-part choir (0033018), as a rousing concert finale! (4:28)

March from third suite · Grade 2

By Robert E. Jager, arr. Douglas E. Wagner

(00-32507) ..................................................... $60.00

Including two of Journey's most revered tunes, Victor López' emotional duo will be a hit with your students and audience. The song "Open Arms" and its status as a power ballad have been remembered years following its original release. One critic praised it as "a lyrical rock ballad and one of the band's best-written songs." However, "Don't Stop Believin,'" also known as a power ballad, is often considered the band's signature song and has become the most downloaded song ever in music history to date. So, get ready for some singing and clapping in the audience! (4:14)

Classic rock at its best--here's a Michael Story arrangement that will take you back to The Blues Brothers. This hit, made famous by Steve Winwood and the Spencer Davis Group, is set in a fast rock style. Carefully scored for your young band this one will be a certain hit on your pop concert! (2:15)

tracK 24

Believe · Grade 2

Music by Howard Shore, arr. Roland Barrett

(00-32506) ..................................................... $55.00

In the words of the composer, Robert Jager, the steady feel and rhythm of a march are somewhat distorted by measures of unequal time values. It is a delight to finally offer this distinguished and time-honored band classic in a practical arrangement with younger players in mind. Although the diminished technical demands at this level have dictated some specific and broad changes, the original style, intent, and musical color of the work have been maintained. (2:33)

tracK 20

Happy Valentine's day! · Grade 2

Words & music by Gary Jackson, Carl Smith, Raynard Miner, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Marvin Hamlisch, & Carole Bayer Sager, arr. Michael Story

(00-32500) ..................................................... $60.00

From the pen of Howard Shore, this fanfare was created for use in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Certain to open your band program with acclaim, this version was carefully scored with the young band in mind by Roland Barrett. A bold musical statement! (1:04)

Happy Valentine's Day! is a medley features three popular songs about love. Titles: (Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher · Theme from Ice Castles (Through the Eyes of Love) · Can't Buy Me Love. A great wide variety of styles in this super-charged medley! (3:50)

Words & music by Dwayne Carter, Kamalijit Jhooti, Robert Larow, Jeremy Skaller, & Jared Cotter, as performed by Jay Sean, arr. Jerry Brubaker

(00-32509) ..................................................... $55.00

Three of the most memorable tunes from the sixth installment of the epic film series are included in this energy-packed medley. Beginning with the emotional "Ginny," the excitement is enhanced with "Wizard Wheezes," and the medley concludes with "Farewell Aragog." Charming and charismatic film-score music carefully arranged for your young band. (4:05)

we are the world · Grade 3

The 1950s brought a new craze to American popular music called "rock and roll," Bill Haley and the Comets were among the forerunners of this new, wild and rhythmical musical style and their recording of "Rock Around the Clock" became the first rock and roll recording to hit the top of the American record charts. Rock and roll stars such as Fats Domino, The Surfaris, Mel Carter, The Tokens, Roy Orbison and others have recorded hits that rose high on these same charts. This short medley of six classic rock and roll titles will take you through some of the top hits of this musical phenomenon. Driving! (5:29)

Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and recorded as a benefit for African famine relief in 1985. This single record became the fastest-selling pop single in recording history. No wonder the recording took the number one spot on pop charts all over the world. Scored in a relaxed style it's a natural for your audience to join in on the final chorus. This arrangement is a wonderful tribute to Jackson, a notable philanthropist and humanitarian who donated and raised million of dollars through his own Heal the World Foundation. Charming! (4:10)

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed the ballet The Nutcracker in 1891­1892. Based on Alexandre Dumas' adaptation of E. T. A. Hoffmann's story, "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King." Before the premiere, Tchaikovsky selected eight pieces from the ballet and created The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a which became an immediate success and contains some of the most recognizable and best-loved holiday music. "Selections from The Nutcracker" contains four numbers from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a. (4:59)

(00-32514) ..................................................... $65.00

The oratorio, The Messiah was composed by Handel in 1741 and 1742, and is considered Handel's best known work. Jack Bullock's arrangement for concert band is constructed using material from the choral parts as well as the original instrumentation of the orchestra. A grandiose setting in the baroque style faithful to the composer's original intent. (3:37)

With shimmering trills, this piece begins an adventure in sound for the holiday season. Every audience will be uplifted by this combination of "Winter Wonderland" and "Sleigh Ride." Instant recognition is guaranteed as we go "walking through a winter wonderland" and proceed with a bracing musical ride on the horse-drawn sleigh. Here is a work that underscores all that is positive and right with music and the holiday season. (2:32)

Folgore's Months · Grade 5

By David Liptak

(00-32548) ...................................................$200.00

The current edition of Gabrieli's Aria Della Battaglia was transcribed for the modern orchestra wind section from the Canto Dialoghi Musicali de Diversi Eccelentissimi Autori: Venice 1590. The work is subtitled "per sonare d'instrumenti da fiato" ("to be played by wind instruments") and is one in a long line of such descriptive works dating from the sixteenth century with no instrumental designation whatsoever. The popularity of this genre, however, did not fade with the close of the Renaissance. Rather, a rich development continued into the nineteenth century with Beethoven's Wellington's Victory, the so-called "Battle Symphony," being a latter-day example. (11:26)

Commissioned by a consortium of outstanding collegiate wind ensembles, Folgore's Months features a soprano voice soloist in a contemporary setting of four movements musically depicting "February," "August," "May," and " December." David Liptak, well known for his creative compositional style (his The Sacred Harp was one of the first wind works included in DHWL), has written a four movement composition for Soprano and Chamber Wind Ensemble based upon the writings of a 14th century poet. Folger's Months is a vital addition to the growing serious repertoire for vocal soloist and winds. (15:00)

Hommage à rameau · Grade 4

By Claude Debussy, wind setting by Donald Hunsberger

(00-32549) ...........................................................$150.00

Seldom has a work by a master of the Impressionistic Period been made available to the wind world. Such a piece is Debussy's Hommage à Rameau now in an exotic wind orchestration by Donald Hunsberger, who continues his long line of scoring contributions to the wind band. The Hommage is from Debussy's "Miroirs" (1905) and was scored from the original piano edition. (7:53)

The years surrounding the American Civil War became a gathering place, a focusing point in the development of the American wind band with several major personages providing leadership during this vital era: Harvey and Allen Dodworth, Thomas Eaton, Patrick S. Gilmore, David L. Downing, Thomas Coates, and especially Claudio S. Grafulla. The current compilation is drawn from the band books of the Third Regiment, New Hampshire Band, also known as the Port Royal band, along with those of the 26th Regimental Band, North Carolina Troops, CSA, were the source of music for Frederick Fennell's historic recording in the early 1960s of music of the Civil War. Hunsberger's contemporary arrangements for today's band include Grafulla's setting of "The Star Spangled Banner," "General Lee's Grand March," "Come Where My Love Lies Dreaming," "Port Royal Galop," "Lorena," "Storm Galop," and two fife and drum calls "Recruiting Sergeant" and "Retreat."
