Description

Sofapilla by Chuck Ricotta is a large percussion ensemble piece that requires a strong sense of groove. Because of the rhythmic variety within individual parts, players must be aware of how their rhythms fit into their fellow performer’s rhythms so that the overall groove is solid. Chuck has also done a fantastic job of making the piece accessible to many different ensembles by making certain parts optional or providing cues within other parts. This piece can easily compliment any band/orchestra concert program or make for a fantastic finale to a percussion ensemble recital!

Sofapilla comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
