BLOWS THE AUDIENCE AWAY
I have conducted this work on several occasions and it always blows the audience away. All of Ayers’s works are extremely well-crafted by a composer who really knows and respects the concert band.

Whistling Tubes

The tubes are available from toy stores and online retailers like Amazon.  A Google search for “whistling tubes” should locate them.
