CONCERT LITERATURE RECORDINGS

Selections will be uploaded to this site as they become available, either as individual rehearsal files or links to performances posted on the internet.  Whenever possible, individual tracks for S1, S2, A1, A2, T1, T2 and B1, B2 will be included.  However, we may only be able to find each selection example as a single full performance rendition by the most proficient ensembles.  Whether listening examples and part-by-part rehearsal assistance is available on the website or not, it is your responsibility to use every avenue available to you in order to learn your parts. 

Much of our literature can be found by typing in the title and composer at http://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/welcome.jsp
Most selections have a listening component included in the perusal guide.
