Orchestra Music
These are all works produced for, and premiered by, the Greenville County Youth Orchestra. Works for full orchestra include doublings of wind parts and cueing of wind solos. For each piece you will receive a bound, large-format (legal size) full score, and 1 copy of each part for you to photocopy as needed for your group. All of these works are available only from me; recordings are available for all.
