Turkey in the Straw

Music Director Emeritus Andy Pease runs an excellent blog on wind band music at andypease.wordpress.com. This summer, he'll be blogging about each piece from our 2014 Summer Season. One of his latest entries tracks the evolution of the folk tune Turkey in the Straw from a simple fiddle diddle to the wind band piece by Michael Markowski. Read all about "Turkey in the Straw" here, and keeping checking back at andypease.wordpress.com for more!
