Ahoy mateys!  This be a swashbuckling tale of pirates and adventures on the high seas!  After a bold fanfare, we hear the opening theme "Pieces of Eight". This is followed by "A Pirate's Jig" featuring the woodwinds on a lively dance theme.  "Walk the Plank" has the low brass playing a brief variation on the main theme. "Buried Treasure" is a dark ballad based on an old familiar melody. "Broadsides!" is a battle at sea with driving percussion and dissonant chords. Then we "Escape to the Open Sea" with some bold brass fanfares before the "Reprise and Finale" section brings our tale to an exciting conclusion. This playable package is great for young bands. Your students and fans will love this show!
