Description

Level: Advanced
"Where the Sidewalk Ends" is a fantastical musical production inspired by the famous poem by Shel Silverstein. This show is full of musical acrobatics and excitement, as well as a majestic middle movement. Soloists include Flute and Alto Saxophone. The First Movement starts with a quirky parade band feel that leads band members falling over the sidewalk one by one into the magical world. The Second movement features a flute soloist as we explore the softer side of this new land juxtaposed with an intense percussion feature. The Final movement begins with a lamenting sax solo that builds into a frantic scramble to pull our last remaining member into the new world.
