Using only six notes, this piece establishes and sustains an infectious rhythm that students and audience will thoroughly enjoy. Percussionists have plenty to do and provide a vital component of the orchestration.

- Program Note by publisher


Across the Serengeti is a musical depiction of the vast grassy plains of Tanzania and Kenya in Africa. Beginning with a short fanfare, the piece contains two primary themes accompanied by an engaging percussion groove. The second theme provides a smooth, contrasting break before the primary theme returning, along with a recapitulation of the fanfare from the opening section. Using only six notes, this piece establishes and sustains an infectious rhythm that students and audience will thoroughly enjoy. Percussionists have plenty to do and provide a vital component of the orchestration.
