The Village of Maple Park (march for concert band)

The Kaneland marches:
The Village of Maple Park
The Village of Kaneville
The Village of Sugar Grove
The Village of Elburn

While this piece is completely original, it is styled after some of the classic marches.

It opens with the saxes and other low reeds playing a theme inspired by Irish music. A brief percussion break featuring tympani leads into more development of the first theme and counter melody.

A "dogfight" section follows, which gives way to a light woodwind theme, which is embellished initially by piccolo and then eventually the entire band playing either the theme or counter melody.

The dogfight repeats, and then the development section of the first theme returns to round out the march. There is a bit of a novelty stinger on the end.

This piece could be used for marching by omitting the oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, and chime parts. The tympani part can be eliminated if it is covered by timbolis during the percussion break early in the piece.

Parts included:

Clarinet 1 & 2
Bass Clarinet
Alto Sax
Tenor Sax
Baritone Sax
Trumpet 1
Trumpet 2 & 3
F Horn 1 & 2
Trombone 1 & 2
Trombone 3 (F att./bass)

THE VILLAGE OF MAPLE PARK by Tom Kirkland, for concert band, comes in a pdf file of 932K, including a twenty-three page score, twenty-one two-page parts, one three-page part, and a license page, sixty-nine pages in all. Performance time should be about 3:30

The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."

Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
