Tip Topper: Polka

  • Listen          Score


    Arthur Pryor (1896 - 1942) was a trombone virtuoso, bandleader, and soloist with the Sousa Band. His legacy is remembered through some 300 compositions left behind. Some of his commonly known works are "Bluebells of Scotland" and "The Whistler and His Dog."


    The Tip Topper: Polka captures a variety of styles and very much embodies the voice of Arthur Pryor in its writing. This lesser known gem makes a wonderful addition to any program and is a favorite of trombone teacher/player extraordinaire Brad Kerns of the University of Kentucky. You can also find a version for brass quintet performed by The "Pershing's Own" Brass Quintet at the below link.
