Stephen Foster Legacy
Composer Stephen Foster
Arranger David Bobrowitz
Stephen Foster is said to be the father of American music, and although he tragically passed away at age 38, he left the music world with a legacy of over 200 songs.
The arranger has taken two of his most famous examples of minstrel music to weave a slow, then fast, two song tribute. After a brief introduction we hear the charming "Jeanie With the Light Brown Hair", of course reharmonized in the arranger's very original style. That song transitions into the energetic "Camptown Races", presented in a variety of styles.
This arrangement will have your audience humming to themselves at first and then clapping to the thunderous hooves of the "Camptown Races".
