Symphonic Band: Modified Seating Audition Excerpts

posted Jan 15, 2010, 6:52 AM by Phil Barnes
Dear Symphonic Band members:
 
In light of the fact that we will perform Symphonic Overture instead of Toccata for Band at festival, I felt it was necessary to change the seating audition excerpts to help us better prepare for county festival.

 

Please replace all your audition excerpts from Toccata for Band with the excerpts from Symphonic Overture listed below. (Note to Percussionists: Your new excerpts come from Bonds of Unity.)

 

Some general notes:

·         Tempo Markings:

o   Beginning à Meno mosso (8 measures before D): Quarter note = 152

o   Meno mosso (8 measures before D) à D: Quarter note = 104

o   D à F: Quarter note = 88

o   F à H: Quarter note = 152

o   H à I: Quarter note = 120

o   I à J: Quarter note = 96

o   J à end: Quarter note = 160

·         Treat all multi-measure rests as one measure

·         A recording of the piece is up on the www.rockvillemusic.org website. Look in the Files section of the website.
