    Two new pieces by Rick Kirby released by Hal Leonard Publications. “Three Colonial Moments” is a suite in three movements suitable for Grade 3 or medium level bands. This piece should be enjoyed by your band and your audience alike.

    “March to Concord” is an unusual march which uses as its main theme the Revoluntionary War tune “Chester”. This composition does not use Chester as you are usually used to hearing it. It is Grade 2.5 or medium easy.
