Candlesticks by Brian Slawson showcases a deep rock beat that beginning percussionists will love. The piece is an excellent choice for middle school percussion ensembles looking to develop dynamic contrast and basic rhythmic timing. Candlesticks is written for eight players across a variety of standard percussion instruments that will keep everyone involved in the music.
Centered in the key of A minor with a hint of Middle Eastern flavor, Candlesticks is also a suitable selection for holiday programs in search of Hanukkah material.
