Written for beginning percussion ensemble with approximately one month of experience, Five Petite Movements is a great way to showcase new percussionists in performance. You have the option of choosing only a selection of movements (1–2 minutes each) or the entire suite (8 minutes). Additionally, different performers may be assigned to the movements to create a mini percussion ensemble concert.
Scored for four or more players, parts may be doubled, tripled, or otherwise multiplied to accommodate the group’s size.
