Drive-thru – Brass Quintet
Hungry? This is an impatient trip through traffic on the way to the drive-thru. There are blaring horns, near collisions, a dump truck backing up (so obnoxious and so irritating), and finally there you are, waiting in line. The 1st trumpet asks “may I take your order” and finally the tuba gets to order a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate milkshake. The order is, of course, repeated over the speaker, accomplished by trombone with a harmon. More waiting, more impatience, more car horns, and finally you are satisfied. Aaah
This piece will be a great hit with your audience. And there are absolutely no calories!
