Composed in 2017 by recommendation from Brain Music (Bravo Music).
“Evergreen” means “perennially fresh” or “never fading”. It depicts what I believe we all felt when we first truly enjoyed playing our instruments.
This “Dual Grade” piece allows players of different experience levels to perform the same ensemble. A Part is for more advanced players and B Part is for beginning-level players.
There are also optional parts to make it accessible for any size of band. The least you can have is nine voices. (Cl,Cl,A.Sax,Trp,Hr,Trb,Euph,Tub,Perc).
Perc. 1 and 2 can be combined and performed on the drum set.
Recommended assigned parts for percussion are as follows:
1 percussionist: Perc.1/2 (Drums)
2 percussionists: Timp. and Perc.1/2 (Drums)
3 percussionists: Timp., Perc.1/2 (Drums), and Perc.3
