Program Notes

Big, bold and full of percussion, this exotic high-energy Shaffer composition is sure to be a huge favorite with developing bands. Lots of extra percussion parts to keep even the largest drum section involved. Includes a slow “mysterioso” section providing a contrast to the energetic nature.

Fire Dance was commissioned by the Georgia Music Educators Association and is dedicated to the young musicians of District 7.
