Series: MusicWorks Grade 4 Score & Parts Composer: Samuel R. Hazo

Level: 4

Commissioned by the acclaimed Midwest Clinic in 2005, this exciting work by Samuel Hazo demonstrates the composer's continued fresh approach and unique vision for wind bands. Scored for brass and percussion with woodwind players contributing East African chant/singing along with egg shakers, this composition is a tribute to the memory of Rosa Parks and her struggles on behalf of civil rights more than 50 years ago. An auxiliary set of woodwind parts is now available (HL04003012), allowing this dramatic music to be performed by a traditional symphonic band instrumentation. Dur: 4:00
