Candy and Ice Cream and Cake

Door Hans Offerdal type 18 en thema

Candy and Ice Cream and Cake I wrote this march for Furuset skoles musikkorps and Haugen skolekorps to use on the 17th of May 2007. Those familiar with Norwegian culture know that this day is the national holiday of Norway. What symbolises this day for most kids I think, are playing and parading in the streets and afterwards eating as much candy, ice cream and cake as possible. The rhythm of the opening motive is based on the rhythm of the title, thus the march is supposed to illustrate a bunch of kids shouting out: 'Candy and Ice Cream and Cake!' There should be no doubt what they want after finishing parading in the streets. Playing time 2:15 Hans Offerdal (1971) Hans holds a Cand.
