“TUEBOR” is a suite of folksongs from the State of Michigan scored wonderfully well for Concert Band. The suite is part of a long tradition of folksong settings going back to Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The three movements are completely playable without giving up the brilliant colors and creative scoring. It is certainly a welcome addition to the concert band repertoire.
