This carefree 'poinciana' features a guitar solo from beginning to end, and works well as a palate cleanser between more fiery numbers in a set. Very reasonable brass ranges make Breathe accessible to high school ensembles, and it functions as an excellent study in ensemble blend, phrasing and dynamics. This chart is easily modified to feature other instruments, and and solo parts are also provided for Eb and Bb instruments.
