Series: Southern Music Publisher: Southern Music Company Format: Softcover Score & Parts

Level: 3.5

This toe-tapping polka is originally for piano solo and transposed to the keys of A and E major. The melody and harmony float between the violins, with a brief appearance for cello and bass. The viola section provides a strong rhythmic drive. This work was written and published in 1860 while Bares was still enslaved. Not only is it a strong example of a composition by a Black composer, but also a playable introduction to more complicated key signatures for your orchestra. Grade 4
