Excelcia Music Publishing is thrilled to announce its annual new release of Concert Band music for 2024-2025.  Bearing themes of hope and resilience, the new release features a variety of works for all levels of skill and musicianship, as well as a wide gamut of occasions, from back-to-school, seasonal, and holiday to contest and festival performances. As in prior years, the publisher’s new Concert Band music includes professional recordings and ScoreVideos of each piece, as well as unique Composer Insights videos. These free-to-use resources aid Band Directors in easy review and selection, and can be used to further immerse students in the music that they are learning to play. Professional recordings of the new music are streaming on all major platforms and the publisher’s website.

“The overarching theme of hope in this year’s Concert Band catalog cannot be denied,” exclaims Director of Music Production and Editing Tyler Arcari. “Exploring themes of determination, resilience, and unity, this collection of music, I’m certain, will resonate strongly with young musicians. The composers have put their collective sense of hope for the world on full display through their music, as the musical world continues to turn to hope as a guiding force."
