Abstract

As wind band conductors and the professional organizations to which they belong continue the push to elevate the status of the wind ensemble in the realm of art music performance, there is a great effort to increase the amount of high quality repertoire for the medium. These efforts have resulted in many commissioning projects by band organizations and other consortia, several of which have benefitted award-winning composer Scott McAllister. The purpose of this study is to explore the outstanding contributions of Scott McAllister to the world of wind band music, with an emphasis on KRUMP. Biographical information for McAllister, an examination of KRUMP, and recommendations to assist the performing musicians in score and part preparations for KRUMPare provided.
