I think a marching band arrangement of about 15 minutes of The Way Up would be interesting.

In the vein of this post: listen to ’Øystein Baadsvik and Fanfare Band of the Royal Netherlands Army ’Mounted Regiments’ - Chameleon, Music for Tuba and Fanfare Band’, track 5: Minuano. Not bad!

Let’s not forget FORWARD MARCH - he would open shows with it.

There are several "marching band/percussion ensemble" covers of Minuano (Six Eight), First Circle and Letter from Home available on iTunes. They are mostly live recordings and you can even a few audience cheers at the end. Worth checking out.

For me the ultimate expression of ’marching band’ has always been drum corps - specifically DCI. 1985 Blue Devils
played a screaming arrangement of First Circle. 1991 Crossmen is another personal favorite which features an all PM

John,great question and posting. I, for one, am a fan of a good marching band and the sound of the full range of instruments.Most band compititions now feature music other than the standards that marching bands years ago played. Weather Report’s Birdland and Santana’s Oyo Como Va are played frequently. I’ve never heard any of Pat’s music done by a marching band but I’m sure it’s being played somewhere.I was in New Orleans over Memorial Day weekend and heard some really wild marching and second line band music. But that comes with the territory. Good luck to your daughter.
