Brass Quintet (Opt. Percussion)
This set of short pieces depicts events that occur annually at fairs all over the world. Ferris wheels, cotton candy and a fanfare to open the fair are all included. Unique to this short suite is "Old McDonald's Barn", a popular viewing event with children found at the Markham Fair. In this movement, animal noises are emulated within the group. This work is not too difficult and is very interesting and fun for all players. Every member is featured and gets a chance to perform some melodic material. There is an optional percussion part.
