Very few composers have the creative ability to write imaginative and appealing music for grade one bands. William Himes is one of those composers. Here is a composition dedicated to an instrumental music educator who devoted 35 years of his life introducing students to the joy, accomplishment, and enrichment that comes from music. Hence the title: To the Pied Piper. Therefore, the opening solo lines symbolize a pied piper, playing a contagious tune that eventually draws all instruments and ranges into the music. Students and audiences, alike, will especially love the lyrical and expressive Andante cantabile middle section as well as the Allegro giocoso beginning and closing sections. A must for festival/contest or that special concert performance!
