Sounds of the Season

by Bruce Pearson and Chuck Elledge

Sounds of the Season is a collection of 15 songs (Grade 1-2) from around the globe representing holiday musical traditions from Africa, the British Isles, Germany, France, the Middle East, the West Indies, and the United States.

The KJOS Multiple Option Scoring allows each arrangement to be performed as a solo, as an ensemble piece of any size or instrumentation, or as a full concert band work.

All pieces are correlated with the Standard of Excellence ENHANCED and Comprehensive Band Method Books 1 and 2.

Eight sacred and seven secular titles make Sounds of the Season ideal for use in school, church, or community settings.
