The St. Norbert College Community Band performed an arrangement of the piece and, to be honest, when my mom, who plays with the group, told me that they're playing Clair de Lune I was pretty jealous. After all, because it's part of Impressions de France it's most certainly on my list of pieces I want to play. Ironically enough, I'm not a huge Debussy fan, although it's more based on personal preference than anything else...not to say there aren't Debussy pieces I love. After all, I am a fan of Clair de Lune, and hopefully I'll be lucky enough to add it to my own performance list sooner rather than later.
And so, here's a recording of the famous piece, and let me know if you catch where the theme comes into Impressions de France at Epcot!
And yes...I did pick the video with the swan as a picture. I have a bit of an obsession.
Have a magical day!
