Afternoon Parade is a concert band piece written for band students in their 1st and 2nd year of playing. It is written in the key of B flat with instrument ranges staying within the concert B flat scale. The only exception is that the flutes and oboes have a slightly extended range to a high C. All of the clarinet parts are written below the break. This lively yet simple piece was a favorite of both my students and their parents. I personally used it as an opening piece however it could be just as effective as a closer. All of the parts are included and feel free to print as many parts for your students as you will need. A recording is also included for you to copy and distribute to your students so they play along.
