     "To Boldly Go" is not a literal Space Show, but instead more focused on the excitement of exploration and a celebration of the accomplishments of human kind! Mvt 1 is about looking to the stars, Mvt 2  is about looking to the earth and features an arrangement of the classic song "Rocket Man" by Elton John (copyright required) and Mvt 3 is about looking beyond throuhg a celebration of what can be done and the excitement of what more there is to explore! 

     This show features a Trumpet soloist in mvt 1 (with a Mellophone option), a Trumpet and Mellophone duet in mvt 2 and a Trumpet and Flute Soloist in mvt 3.

     This show was written by Fred Emory Smith and John Mapes. It was originally commissioned for the fall of 2022 and was released for the 2023 season. There will be a Beg/Int Percussion version available shortly. Inquire if interested and we can send you updates.

    *Perusal score available upon request
