Apex

Trumpet (or any solo instrument) and Wind Band

Apex is a solo which can be played on any instrument (the recording on this page is with the Chinese Er-hu). It was originally commissioned by Mark Bousie and David Armitage (President of Sellers International Ltd.) for the Sellers International Youth Band to perform at the Action Research Entertainment Contest in Blackpool, 2007.

The accompaniments parts are simple, and they feature singing, as well plenty of percussion!

Program Note

Apex is a solo which can be played on any instrument (the recording on this page is with the Chinese Er-hu). It was originally commissioned by Mark Bousie and David Armitage (President of Sellers International Ltd.) for the Sellers International Youth Band to perform at the Action Research Entertainment Contest in Blackpool, 2007.

The accompaniments parts are simple, and they feature singing, as well plenty of percussion!

Apex takes its title from the literal meaning of the word – the highest point.

First performance:
Sellers International Youth Band
Mark Bousie – Conductor
Joe Murray – Cornet

Performance notes:
The singing parts are written in transposed pitch, and should be sung to an “ah” sound
The percussionists should feel free to add instruments (Such as bongos) and treat section C to the end as a guide, which they can change and build on
From section C until the end, percussion parts 1 and 2 may be played by one percussionist on a drum set
