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.

NOTE: 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.

“La Ofrenda” was first commissioned by Los Alamitos HS for fall 2018.
