Song Arrangement – Thrift Shop
(American Band Journal Scoring, 2015)
Written at the request of Bandmaster Nathan Miller and the Salvation Army Student Fellowship Band of Asbury University, this is a song arrangement of Macklemore’s modern pop song of the same name. Through this piece, Bandmaster Miller and the band are “hoping to draw out that the Salvation Army is a thrift shop, [albeit] a big metaphorical one, where lives are being reclaimed, repurposed, and redeemed!”
The piece will be featured on the SASF’s Spring Ministry Trip to Texas and in Asbury University’s Chapel Service on April 22, featuring a message by General Andre Cox.
