'Na Proxima Vida (In The Next Life) by Michele Fernandez   Grade 4

Premiered by the 2020 Mid-State HS Band (Tennessee) and the Clark College Jazz Ensemble (Washington): This dreamy, medium-tempo authentic Brazilian samba features your lead trombone soloist on a written solo with lush ensemble harmonies, beautiful countermelodies and an open improv section before kicking into a brief funk groove-winding back down to a warm and pensive ending. Rhythm section parts are clearly notated in detail for an authentic performance and is playable by as few as 2 or 3 percussionists. Your students and audience will love performing this beautiful composition, which also makes a great festival selection. The composer, Michele Fernandez is a graduate of Univ of Florida (BME), and FL Int’l Univ (MME). She has served in the public schools since 1989. During her tenure as director at her alma mater (’89-99), the Miami Senior High Marching, Symphonic and Jazz Bands consistently earned top honors and ratings.
