Program Notes

Featuring the entire percussions section, Brazilian Bell Carol is an exciting arrangement of the traditional Ukranian Bell Carol. Beginning with percussion grooves and solo fragments, the arrangement quickly transforms into the traditional bell carol in a very untraditional setting. The bell carol is a Brazilian street parade accompanied by a complete samba school. Feel free to chap, cheer and scream as the band presents this South American holiday celebration.
