Xylophone Feature

Capture all the fun of the Roarin' 20s with Charleston Capers – a showpiece for solo xylophone and band! James Moyer has done a masterful job of scoring the original piano part for a full concert band without covering up the soloist.

Program Notes

Written by one of history's greatest xylophone players, George Hamilton Green, Charleston Capers was originally scored for xylophone and piano. It has appeared in several versions for xylophone and marimba trio or quartet, but appears here for the first time for solo xylophone and band. Capture all the fun of the Roarin' 20s with this showpiece!
