Flamingo Road, Steve Hodges Flexible Band/String Ensemble Grade 2.5
This version of Flamingo Road by Steve Hodges is part of our Alfred FLEX offerings and is designed with maximum flexibility for use by any mix of instruments---wind, strings, and percussion, including like- or mixed-ensembles with as few as 5 players. The suggested instrumentation and a customizable Teacher Map will help you plan out how to best assign parts to suit your ensemble's needs. It also comes with supplemental parts for maximum flexibility. With the purchase of this piece, permission is granted to photocopy the parts as needed for your ensemble. A percussion accompaniment track is also available as a free download. String parts have been carefully edited with extra fingerings and appropriate bowings to support students in mixed ensembles playing in less familiar keys.
Flamingo Road is a Latin-inspired piece that starts in the fast lane and never lets up! Featuring an active percussion section and some catchy themes, each section of the band will take a turn in the driver's seat. Stay in your lane! (2:18)
