Arranged 2012 for Concert Band

Pomp and Circumstance was premiered on May 12, 2012 by the Fillmore Central High School Concert Band. This arrangement was designed to be as simple and still sound good, easily adapted to be played as long as is necessary and with minimal rehearsal time.

Sir Edward Elgar wrote his Pomp and Circumstance Military Marches, Op. 39 in the early 20th century. The first of the six marches was played for Yale’s graduation ceremony in 1905, and has since been played at countless thousands of graduation ceremonies. For audience members it is the sound of tradition, and I arranged this knowing that our own graduation ceremony happened four short days after our last concert of the year.

The conductor’s score is provided in both a traditional concert band format and a condensed melody/harmony format so every conductor can fit their needs.
