New Orleans Sketches

New Orleans Sketches

Difficulty Level: Medium-Easy, Grade 3 – 4 

Style: Original Arrangement with Symphonic and Jazzy sections

Original Compostion by Tim Hinton

Percussion Music by Gregg Havey

(Originally commissioned by the Archbishop Alter H.S. Band, Kettering, OH – Todd Tucker, Director)

This original arrangement combines classic New Orleans tunes like “When the Saints” and “Down by the Riverside” with “Amazing Grace” and original music, all tied together using the gorgeous “Pavane” by Faure.  We first “set the scene,” then explore the danger of the dark corners of the city, look for salvation during the ballad, and end with a celebration of the city.  Written for a very small group, this show is very playable, has a lot of character, and is full of visual possibilities and audience appeal.

Fee for the use of the music for the season:
Winds and Percussion – $2000
