Castlebrooke Overture CTS-8012-00.jpeg

Dedicated to William (Bill) Maupin, a friend and fellow music educator of Claude T. Smith, “Castlebrooke Overture” is a perfect piece to introduce younger ensembles to meter changes and a couple measures in 3/8 time. This flexible arrangement allows ensembles to perform the work with as few as ten musicians providing accessibility and flexibility for numerous instrumentation needs, while still allowing a full ensemble sound.

*The posted recording is based on the full band scoring but aligns with the suggested preferences for either woodwinds/strings or brass suggested in the score.
