A great find tonight on Youtube. I was fortunate enough to have Irish Jig for Young Feet performed at the 63rd Annual Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Decmeber by the Vandercook College Symphonic Band. My thanks to Dr. Charles Menghini and Stacey Larson for programming this piece. Stacey did a great job with the band, and it was a pleasure meeting her. You can view the performance by clicking here. Another great performance was given by the Florida State Summer Music Camp Wind Orchestra under the direction of Dr. Patrick Dunnigan of American Visions. My thanks to Dr. Dunnigan for selecting the piece and sharing it with these students. You can view the performance by clicking here. I am also pleased to learn that both Irish Jig for Young Feet and Pirates! were selected to the BandWorld Top 100 for 2009-10.
