Secrets from Down Under - The Best Australian Band Repertoire You've Never Heard

Clinic Synopsis:

If you were asked to name five Australian composers who have written great music for winds you'd probably start with Percy Grainger, and then...? This clinic will explore the rich catalogue of Australian wind music suitable for middle, high school and college bands. Meet composers and hear excerpts of new and unfamiliar works performed by one of Australia's best high school bands. You will walk away with a 'swag' full of new repertoire and programming ideas to bring back to your ensembles.
