Re: December Band Concert
I've seen this done:
Use the ubiquitous "christmas song" line in the book like Good King Wenceslas.
Everyone plays the line.
Flutes stand and play it.
Clarinets stand and play.
and on down the line.
It adds a 2 minute "song" to the program and every kid's section gets to stand up and be featured.
Hey Yellow Boarders,
I have a 6th grade band concert that I need to lengthen.
Normally I do 6,7,8th grade on the same night and 6th grade is like 10 minutes. Now I'm at a 6th grade center and looking at more-like 20-25 minutes. I'll have 160 beginners on the gym floor and I have Jingle Bells, My Dredle and a couple songs from the Belwin Beginning Band kit #7.
Any tips on how to make this an impressive and memorable experience?
