Diminished Minor Alterations
(CONCERT BAND, GRADE 3) The newest addition to our wildly popular "Minor Alterations" series is scored for younger bands, yet it retains all the humor and excitement of the Grade 5 version! It's a game of holiday hide-and-seek for your audience where favorite Christmas tunes are transposed from major to minor keys then disguised, layered and morphed even more. How many can you name? From the ominous introductory Deck the Halls to the final, frenzied Nutcracker Suite finale, each tune is lovingly twisted into something new and inventive.
This piece will be premiered by the Colleyville (TX) Middle School Band on December 19 at the 2018 Midwest Clinic in Chicago.
