Program Notes

This is truly exceptional writing for bands at this grade level. Exciting and musically appealing, it's particularly suitable for festival or concert performances, carefully scored and written to bring out the best qualities of young bands. The energetic rhythms and uplifting themes celebrate the musical journey that students and teachers take part in to create memorable and inspiring performances.

- Program Note from publisher

Acclaim is a short concert overture-style piece. While it does not have the more traditional fast-slow-fast construction, which characterizes most concert overtures, Grice achieves a concert overture style by using contrasting textural and orchestrational techniques between the opening, middle and end of the work. The work contains driving rhythms and thematic material, which is simultaneously musically stirring and technically attainable by young players.
