Program Notes

Carnival is a samba set in the famous streets of Rio. Performers should be encouraged to treat it in a big band style and really "go for it!". The percussion section has a simple notated samba pattern, but this should be used as a basis for what you can achieve - playing more than one instrument, maybe cymbals of a whistle, or even a drumkit! There is a section for solos in the percussion if required.
