A River Trilogy provides a wonderful opportunity for first year bands to work on legato style. After an original introduction, the full ensemble plays the African-American spiritual "Deep River." A clarinet and flute duet ushers in the early English folk song "The Water is Wide," and the full band concludes with a lovely treatment of the American classic "Shenandoah." (2:15)
