Description:

    Everything old is new again!  This head-first exploration of public domain literature uses 13 well known-classical repertoire, but the arrangements are filled with unexpected twists and fresh-sounding contemporary treatments of familiar material. The Classics moves swiftly through arrangements of timeless music like Symphony No. 40 (Mozart, 1788), Canon in D (Pachelbel, 1680), and the 1812 Overture (Tchaikovsky, 1880), just to name a few! 

    This show can be a great way to introduce the history of classical music and iconic composers to your marching band and inspire creativity with the modern approach to classical music. The full details of composers/arrangements used are listed in the score.

    This show was originally commissioned for Chino Hills HS for the fall of 2012 and was released for the 2013 season.
