La Ofrenda


Written with guest wind arranger Doug Thrower and featuring a collection of renowned Spanish and Mexican music, including some of which Doug also arranged for the Bluecoat’s 2016 show, Down Side Up, La Ofrenda is a show dedicated to the Mexican holiday, Dìa de los Muertos. The musical pieces featured in this show are: Danzòn No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, Heat of the Day by Pat Metheny, Todo Tiende by Ojos de Brujo, and Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquìn Rodrigo. Featuring a challenging wind and percussion book, this show will be a blast for your performers, especially if they are fans of the Bluecoat’s version of Heat of the Day and Todo Tiende.

This show was first commissioned by Los Alamitos for fall 2018.

Permission to arrange and perform Danzòn No. 2, Heat of the Day, Todo Tiende, and Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez must be granted in order to perform this show. A fee of $1000 will be added to account for this. Contact us with any questions.
