Brass Quintet in C Major

Anna Halladay

Grade 8, Edmunds Middle School, Burlington,VT

"This is a fast, energetic piece in 2/4 with a short introduction in C major and A minor, then it goes into a trumpet duet with the tuba in the background. There are sudden changes, like when it switches from this fast melody to the french horn solo, with the trombone adding harmony. For the last few measures, it goes back to a fast melody, this time with everyone playing. Right now, I don't have many ideas as to where to go next, and I'm open to any suggestions."
