CONCERT BAND, GR 3-4
If you love Percy Grainger’s “Irish Tune from County Derry” but it’s just a bit too much for your band, consider Buddy’s “To a Musician”. It requires the same musical warmth and expressiveness as “County Derry” but is scored with more comfortable ranges appropriate for Grade III literature. Although not as easy as it first appears, it is a lyrically melodic and very playable piece. It would be well suited for your spring festival or concert.
