Black playout folder

Sarah is considering the following pieces for the playout folder for the next two concerts.  Note that the final list is not determined yet, nor is the order in which pieces will be played - but this is to give you a list of pieces to practice over the holidays.

  1. Main Street Celebration - Steven Reineke
  2. Summertime - George Gershwin (arr Robert Longfield)
  3. Moravian Dance - Travis Weller
  4. Georgia on my Mind - Hoagy Carmichael (arr Michael Brown)
  5. Coldplay on Stage - Guy Berryman (arr Michael Brown)
  6. Santana in Concert - arr Michael Brown **
  7. The Irish Baker - arr Robert Longfield
  8. Amparito Roca - Jaime Texidor (arr Gary Fagan)
  9. March of the Belgian Paratroopers - Pierre Leemans (arr James Swearingen)
  10. Sinatra in Concert - arr Jerry Nowak **
  11. Klezmer Fantasy - Marcel Saurer
  12. New York 1927 - Warren Barker **
  13. Cartoon Symphony - arr Larry Clark
  14. Baba Yetu (Swahili adaptation "Lord's Prayer") - Christopher Tin (arr DE Wagner)
  15. Un Petit Café à Paris - Jeremy Bell
  16. Stevie Wonder in Concert - arr Paul Murtha **
  17. Ammerland - Jacob de Haan **

** Note that those with the asterisks are dependent upon how they brush up and/or who we have to cover necessary parts.

Obviously we will drop some as this is a very long list!

Sarah will be ordering a big Christmas number for our finale – still deciding which one.  Bearing in mind that we will have to learn it from scratch, we may not have time to tweak up all the others.  Most likely to drop Sinatra and Stevie Wonder.
