    "A Musical Journey" for Concert Band

    Just one more before I signoff for the night. It's a musical journey but I feel like I never get where I want to go But maybe someday. Anyway, here goes.

    Mitch,

    I agree with jmc in the "Powerhouse" thread that your writing sounds like it would be fun to play - I certainly would have enjoyed playing these in school. Good use of contrasting material. The bluesy turn after 3:35 made me laugh out loud. Very enjoyable.

    Thanks Tom. I try to keep a lot of my music on the fun side. That way I don't take myself too seriously and start writing really heavy stuff. Ha ha!

    Some interesting writing in this, Mitch -- some real meat to chew on, in addition to the lighter side. With a little tender care, I could see this becoming a very attractive piece for, say, fairly good highschool ensembles.

    I just came from a highschool band concert last night, for instance. Although they were really quite good, the material was obviously chosen for a lot of rhythmic bang but overall simplicity, with very little substance to it.

    More music like this should really find its way into the repertoire.... so, get to work, Mitch...lol!

    Best,
