Friday Songs 2014-15

Friday songs are my way of giving my students exposure to songs, styles and repertoire that they may not listen to on their own.  It also will give them a window into my "varied" tastes in music.  As I tell students, my hope is that I am playing/showing them music that they probably don't have on their own iPod, etc.

5/29/15 Since we are marching next week in the Portland Rose Festival Junior Parade,
here is last year's Sweepstakes winning band.  
Notice their lines and their horn angles...

Perhaps they'll perform it again during game 3, 4 or 5? The video quality isn't great, but the playing is stellar!!
