The Nutcracker Ballet

The Nutcracker Ballet

Difficulty Level: Medium, Grade 3/4

Style: Contemporary Arrangements of Classic melodies

Original Arrangements by Tim Hinton

Percussion Music by Clif Walker

(Originally commissioned by the Collins Hill H.S. Band, Suwanee, GA, Richard Magner, Director)

Arabian Dance / Trepak / The Battle / In The Pine Forest (w/drum solo) / March / Snowflakes

A precursor to the more difficult "Nutcracker for the New Millennium", this show mixes classical music with a lot of fun.  The opening is dramatic, "Trepak" is exciting, and the closer is a JAZZ piece!  It's a great combination of the traditional, innovative, and inventive. (Also see the show titled "Christmas 2011" which has a great Nutcracker closer – in the newest version.)

Fee for the use of the music for the season:
Winds and Percussion – $1500
Winds Only – $1000

Tim Purple Shirt squareOne of my proudest moments! When a band recently peformed this show at a clinic with top adjudicators, all of the clinicians came down after the performance and asked the director, "WHO wrote these arrangements!!"  I know the midi recordings are not good but this show really works and the closer is a surprise and a delight!
