Description "Downfall of Paris" has been arranged for Young Concert Band by Dennis Lester. This classic military camp tune dating from the 1790’s works very well for concert band. Features drummers and flute/piccolo players Many years ago, Mr. Lester heard “ Downfall of Paris” featuring a solo snare drummer accompanied by a concert band. Many of us know that the snare drum part is a classic snare drum solo. When presented with the fife melody, it takes on a new dimension. Mr. Lester started this project as a percussion ensemble and later expanded it to full concert band. No matter what your ensemble includes, you can present this piece successfully as long as the snare drum and melody parts are played. This is a classic from the Civil War era. It would be appropriate for spring concerts or patriotic celebrations. Enjoy!
