The Juggler

performed by the CGCC Summer Percussion Ensemble

The Juggler arranged for percussion ensemble
Publisher: C. Alan Publications (2007)
Composed: 2005
Duration: 2’15”
Difficulty: Medium
Instrumentation (10 players): xylophone, vibraphone, two 4.3-octave marimbas, triangle, tambourine, crash cymbals, bass drum

An entertaining work originally for piano, this arrangement maintains the same form as the original in its scoring for percussion ensemble. Written for xylophone, vibraphone, marimba (four players on two instruments), triangle, tambourine, bass drum, and crash cymbals, The Juggler is an excellent piece for an intermediate to advanced high school percussion ensemble.

… interesting … spirited work … driving feel suggests the actions of a juggler … – F. Michael Combs
