Here is the "buckets" percussion feature we will be performing on May 12th. Gabe, this is all you man! The song is called "Recycled" by Julia Davila. It is a favorite of mine. Since I work as a painter, it wasn't hard to find some old paint buckets! It is not only a good musical peice, but an awesome visual. Pay close attention to sticking and crisp rhythms. This group has 8 drums, 2 on each part
Here is the recording of Tim Rumsey's rendition of the popular hymn "To God be the Glory".
The recording has no percussion part, and, of course, a horn, oboe and bassoon instead of flute, trumpet and trombone!
FUN FACT: Even though this music was originally composed by Jerry Bock, it was orchestrated and conducted by John Williams - my favorite American film score composer!
