Dragons In The Mist
Randy Navarre (composer)
All Grade ½’s are playable with only 5 instruments: 1 flute, 2 clarinets, 1 alto saxophone, and 1 trumpet. Those instruments are not always doubled elsewhere. The song is written in such a way, it will sound good with a limited instrumentation and richer and fuller as your band gets bigger. All Grade ½’s by Northeastern Music are playable after only 5 – 7 lessons. At this performance level, no clarinet crosses the break. Dragons In The Mist is written in an easy choral style with only whole, half, and quarter notes. No eighth notes are in this song. All the chords of the diatonic scale are used so it does not sound like a beginning band song. The 1st trumpet’s highest note is Bb. This is one of the most popular pieces in our grade ½ series.
