Wausau West High School Band presented the very first Bandstock in fall of 2009. Inspired by the UW-Madison Varsity Band Concerts, this was to be a concert opportunity for the band program to reach out to the community, encourage band musicians and recruit future band members. The closer for this year's concert was Wavin' Flag by K'naan. This is one of six arrangements I wrote for the concert this year. The custom wind, string, and vocal parts enhance and support the professional rock band musicians and vocals. This was written for full marching band, strings, and choir. We even added some "island street-band" trumpet licks to top it off featuring our guest soloist. It was a great way to end a very moving concert.
