Description

“American Dances” is a three movement suite originally composed for the Boston Pops Brass. Each movement features an American popular music genre. “Square” draws upon the country, western and bluegrass traditions as brought to the United States though settlers from the British Isles. Fun, interactive and delightfully challenging! When programmed with “Rag” (Mvt. 1) and “Swing” (Mvt. 3), the full “American Dances” suite is particularly effective in any concert setting.
