JAZZ BAND - Grade 2

Instrumentation:           Alto Saxophone 1-2, Tenor Saxophone 1-2, Baritone Saxophone,

This arrangement of our nation's National Anthem was written for my high school jazz band back in 2001.  It opened our first public performance after the September 11 attacks.  I will never forget seeing everyone in the concert hall stand as I turned and saluted the flag as the band played.  The Anthem is not often played by jazz groups, so I hope you'll consider adding this to your performance list.
