Maria/Cool (from West Side Story)

Maria/Cool (from West Side Story)

Series: Esprit Marching Band Composers: Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein Arrangers: Jay Bocook, Will Rapp

Level: 3

Using an energetic and dynamic intro from “Maria,” this cleverly arranged opener then slips into the jazzy strains of “Cool.” Using plenty of unison lines, exposed sections for percussion, and even a shout chorus, this is an impressive chart without being too difficult to pull off. For an extra “cool” effect, have your color guard do the finger snaps.
