THROWBACK THURSDAY: RE - DAVID HOLSINGER'S "ON AN AMERICAN SPIRITUAL" [LIVE MARCHING BAND PERFORMANCE 1995/ME = ALTO CLARINET]

I'd mentioned David Holsinger's over-used piece "On An American Spiritual" in my recent scrapbooking post, and knew I had a recording of it in at least one format.  THIS one was the final time I'd ever performed it (out of four total times used in marching/concert bands in just two years!).  Here, I was the only alto clarinet player (with my specializing in the obscure instruments ass), as I was at the Honor's Band/Holsinger event in 1994.

YEAH we were a small band.  By high school marching band standards, a AA out of AAAA max.
