Program Notes

A beginning band piece limited to a 6-note range, Rite of Passage will have your band playing together in very little time. Utilizing smaller chamber sections as well as the full band, this is an excellent teaching piece.

Rite of Passage was written for the Warren Elementary School Band (Cockeysville, Maryland), Brad Zimmerman, director.
