This lively, nostalgic piece will musically transport players and audience alike to the iconic amusement parks of turn-of -the-century Coney Island (near Brooklyn, New York). The sweet, cheerful sounds that flowed from the carousels and bandwagons of a time gone by infuse this characteristic, but level-appropriate work. Ragtime feel is achieved via accessible syncopations, chromatics that lay well on the instruments, and sectional form. Novel percussion, including a slide whistle, adds to the fun! (2:35)
