YOUNG MUSICIANS FESTIVAL

Suggested Low Brass Repertoire
Trombone, Euphonium or Baritone Horn

Students should perform two (2) contrasting pieces that indicative their current level of study. One piece should be classical in nature, as the list suggests, and the other can be of the students own choosing. The second piece can also be from this list, or any piece in any genre as the student desires. Contrasting elements might include tempo or rhythm, historic time period, dynamics or texture, etc. The list below is to be used as a guide rather than a limitation to your choices. Students should perform either two (2) short pieces, or movements, or one longer piece.
