Phantom of The Opera

Composer: Webber, Andrew Lloyd
Arranger: Lavender, Paul
Run Time: 2:25

The dynamic┬ápiece, “The Phantom of the Opera” combines excitement, energy and musical emotion as the curtain opener. The familiar opening strains are nothing short of stunning. It will be an impressive opener for the field!

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

Composer: Webber, Andrew Lloyd
Arranger: Bocook, Jay
Run Time: 1:59

“Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” is one of the trademark ballads from The Phantom of the Opera. In this masterfully arranged melodic song we have lush tone colors, a lyric trumpet solo and well-paced builds make this one particularly effective.

Masquerade

Composer: Webber, Andrew Lloyd
Arranger: Bocook, Jay
Run Time: 1:48

“Masquerade”, this light-hearted and rhythmic production from The Phantom of the Opera offers a nice style contrast in the “Phantom” field show with plenty of variety and energy.

Music of The Night

Composer: Webber, Andrew Lloyd
Arranger: Lavender, Paul
Run Time: 1:50

“The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera is a marvelously paced closing production. Opening with a trumpet solo, the arrangement builds impressively to a climax then tapers to a quiet ending with the distinctively dissonant “phantom” chords.
