This is up-tempo setting of the classic spiritual is a guaranteed winner! After a short and solemn introduction, featuring an alto sax solo, “Down to the River” kicks into high gear, with the composer’s signature driving rock feel. Written solidly at the medium easy level, this tune features repetitive rhythms and patterns that will help you get performance ready with a minimum of rehearsal time. Playable with limited instrumentation, with careful attention to instrument ranges, and written out solos over easy changes, “Down to the River” is accessible to the smallest and youngest ensembles, as well as a lot of fun for more advanced groups. Loaded with lots of appeal, this tune is an ideal contest/concert selection. Don’t miss this one!
