Band Class Favorites

Yeah, I was in band from sixth grade all through high rschool. Played rthe trombone. These are some of my favorite pieces that I rremember rplaying during those seven years. Band was a lot of fun, respecially rtour. Can't decide which I enjoyed more...Canada's East rcoast in rgrade ten with my old school or Seattle in grade twelve rwith the high rschool I graduated from.
1Percy Grainger
Children's March

If this song doesn't get stuck in your head, I don't know one that will. So much fun to play! Did a research project on Grainger...interesting guy.
2Karl L. King
Trombone King

Possibly my favorite. (Duh, I played the trombone!) The euphonium player and the other trombonist and I used to play the trio during warmup/setup time and the percussionists would join in and pretty soon it became routine.
3Gustav Holst
Second Suite in F

The E flat suite was also pretty fun to play. We played a lot of Holst actually...he has a lot of great pieces. I played this one in grade nine with the concert band at my old school and then again in grade twelve at my other school. Probably more fun the second time around because I was playing first trombone instead of third haha.
4Ralph Ford
Royal Canadian Sketches

Played this one in grade nine. I remember going to a Seniors' Residence by my school and during the main trombone part I reached too far for seventh position and my slide fell (quite loudly) to the floor. It was all the other trombonist could do to finish the part without laughing.
5Pierre Leemans
March of the Belgian Paratroopers

Or was it Parachutists? I can't remember...all I know is this one was a lot of fun to play.
6Composer??
Agnus Dei

I'm not actually sure if I got a lot of the composers right, but this one I can't even make an educated guess. This piece was absolutely beautiful...at the time we played it, I thought the notes were really high, so every time I hit them I was just thrilled.
7John Williams
Medley

The piece wasn't actually called Medley, but it was a mashup of a bunch of John Williams pieces. Star Wars...Indiana Jones...all that good stuff. It was hard for me being in the high school band when I wasn't actually in high school, but it was a great piece. Shoot, what was it called??
8John Philip Sousa
Sempre Fidelis

Every single class, my teacher would spell Sempre as "Semper" on the board and I would correct him because it drove me crazy. I think after a while he started doing it on purpose because he knew it bothered me.
9Gary P. Gilroy
Spitfire!

This one was awesome because I got to play percussion for the first time. Usually there aren't enough trombonists so a trumpet player gets to play percussion when there aren't enough, but this time I got to and was SO excited. We played it in concert and I remember that time was particularly bad...I contributed to the mess by hitting the gong four beats early. Fortunately it's the type of piece where no one really notices, but still...I beat myself up about it for weeks.

The Pink Panther, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Animaniacs, The Simpsons and more.
