Under the Big Top is an original programmatic work in three movements for Flute Choir.

  1. At the Circus, conveys the excitement of being at the circus—the procession of the performers, the elephants lumbering into the ring, the concessionaires selling peanuts, popcorn & Cracker Jacks, the Ringmaster welcoming the audience to the show, and the entrance of the juggling clowns.
  2. On the Flying Trapeze, depicts the swaying of the trapeze and the daring acrobatics performed high in the air by the trapeze artists.
  3. Clowning Around, is descriptive of the amusing antics of the circus clowns as they jump and bounce around entertaining the crowd.

This piece is scored for piccolo, 3 flutes, alto (alt. c-flute part included) & bass.  (7:30)

    Under the Big Top
    By Phyllis Avidan Louke, ALRY Publications

    A great piece for Flute Choir:
    “…The three movements take you straight to the circus with the familiar parade of clowns, trapeze artists, animals and general merriment…”

    “…You can almost smell those hamburgers!”
