Music by Thomas Bough and Jim Bailey


Grade: 3
Performance Time: 7:13

Anna Lynn Dancing is a musical representation of a young girl at play, dancing and twirling without a care in the world. The first movement starts quietly but builds into a joyful, exuberant outburst. A hauntingly beautiful Alto Saxophone solo forms the basis of a beautiful contrasting middle section before the energetic theme returns. The second movement begins with a woodwind chamber ensemble, followed by a duet for solo trumpet and concert snare drum, which leads to a powerfully moving rendition of the hymn "Amazing Grace". This movement depicts a calmer, more reflective dance. The final movement is more of a fun and funky dance, which leads to a reprise of the opening theme.
