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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This show is not for everyone! The additional licensing fees are extensive. This show contains arrangements of Danzòn No. 2, Heat of the Day, Todo Tiende, and Adagio from Concierto de Aranjuez, all incredible pieces of music, but very pricey to license. Potentially up to an additional $4480 total to license all pieces, in addition to our show cost. Additional licensing and associated fees will apply to your final invoice, but we’ll handle acquiring the licensing for you, and you’ll save time and some money by avoiding processing fees and taxes (we cover those costs). Contact us with any questions.
“La Ofrenda” was first commissioned by Los Alamitos HS for fall 2018.
