Concert Band Overture, Difficult, $40.00
This composition was written for and dedicated to the Quantico Marine Corps Band, Quantico, Virginia and their Enlisted Conductor Gunnery Sergeant Timothy W. Otis. He and his Marines certainly serve their country and certainly perform "With Distinction" with distinction.
With an exciting and tuneful melody, catchy rhythmic grove and multiple meters, the opening of With Distinction is sure to provide excitement and entertainment to your audience as well as a challenge to conductor and ensemble alike. The chorale in the middle shifts through several key centers easily and is Gunny Otis' favorite part of the composition. A big exciting ending finishes out this composition.
