He brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to bear in discussing each of more than 25 important excerpts, those most likely to be requested in the audition process. Each excerpt is preceded by background information and performance tips. Kirkland even thoughtfully provides information on the audition process for military bands, along with contact information for anumber of military bands and some of the most important bands in the world. For performers considering a move to the world of wind band performance, Kirkland's offering is indispensable. -the publisher
