Thread: Suggestions for patriotic euphonium solo

  1. Suggestions for patriotic euphonium solo

    Any suggestions for a euphonium solo with piano accompaniment, appropriate for upcoming 4th of July weekend? I am looking for something for church offertory, so should only run 3 minutes or so.

  4. Yes, thank you. I am looking for something sort of like that, only shorter. I purchased that not long ago, but it is much too long.

    How about Eternal Father? It's a nice hymn that is found in various hymnals (with different names sometimes) and it is the official hymn of the Coast Guard and Navy. Ken Friedrich has a pretty good arrangement in this book of unaccompanied solos:

    This book of hymns and descants has the tune and many others. You could make an arrangement out of them if you have a cooperative organist/pianist:

    If you can find a traditional piano/solo arrangement of “God Bless America” I’d be happy to be a member of your congregation.
    Only problem would be the risk of singers joining in.
    As a solo piece, the verse is a must, and allows for thoughtful musical interpretation before moving into the slightly more uptempo refrain......

  7. Thank you for the additional ideas!

    Donít know the piece but you should be able to find a good place to make a cut to meet your time limit.

    About 5 minutes long, Patriotic quotes abound.

  10. Thank you for additional replies.
