Scored for 6-part flute choir with piccolo, 3 C flutes, alto flute (optional 4th C part included), and bass flute.
A programmatic work in three movements: At the Circus, On the Flying Trapeze, Clowning Around, this is lots of fun to perform!
“At the Circus” conveys the excitement of being at the circu – the procession of the performers; the elephants lumbering into the ring; the concessionaires selling peanuts, popcorn, and Cracker Jacks; the Ringmaster welcoming the audience to the show; and the entrance of the entrance of the juggling clowns.
“On the Flying Trapeze” depicts the swaying of the trapeze and the daring acrobatics performed high in the air by the trapeze artists. “Clowing Around” is descriptive of the amusing antics of the circus clowns as they jump and bounce around, entertaining the crowd.
