This original John O'Reilly overture is the perfect vehicle for a second-year winter concert. The lyrical opening shifts into a variety of modal tonalities and gives prominent lines to all sections of the band. A bright snare drum solo ushers in the distinctive melody in the Lydian mode that dominates the sparkling Allegro section. Windstar Overture is guaranteed to make your ensemble sound mature far beyond their years! Correlated with Accent on Achievement, Book 2, Page 15.
