Many grade 2 and 3 pieces contain both lyrical and technical moments. My rationale for playing these for contest were mostly endurance and concentration (teaching middle schoolers) but also a lot of lyrical pieces don’t have much percussion-and I alway had a lot of very good percussionists I wanted to keep engaged throughout our performance. We played lots of lyrical |
Pieces for other concerts.
I would name some of these tunes but not sure they are still on the list, but examples of what we played would be Steppes of Russia by Del Borgo which was grade 2, and American Riversongs by La Plante and Scarborough Fair by Custer, with both of these grade 3 pieces having flute parts that would make you not interested.
Also, your sightreading piece at this level will more than likely be divided into technical and lyrical, so just to make sure you’ve got that lyrical style in the contest preparation of the students, i don’t think it would be a good idea to program only technical for your stage performance.
