Attraction: The Music of Scheherazade (Full Instrumentation)

Attraction: The Music Of Scheherazade is an adaption of the 2004 Santa Clara Vanguard Show that Key Poulan programmed and co- arranged with Jim Casella.  It is based on themes from the 1888 orchestral work Scheherazade by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Subject to the bloodthirsty whims of the Sultan Shariar, the clever Scheherazade eludes death at his cruel hand for 1,001 nights with riveting and romantic stories of princes, princesses, battles, and festivals, before finally securing both the Sultan’s heart and his mercy.
