America Enters The Great War for Brass Quintet by Jari Villanueva
A medley of Goodbye Broadway, Hello France and How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm (After They’ve Seen Paree)?
“Good-Bye Broadway, Hello France” is a 1917 song composed by Billy Baskette, with lyrics written by C. Francis Reisner and Benny Davis. While the song was popular during its time, it also saw a revival during World War II, where some soldiers preferred World War I songs over the war songs being produced at the time.
How Ya Gonna Keep ‘Em Down on the Farm
(After They’ve Seen Paree)??
“How Ya Gonna Keep ‘em Down on the Farm (After They’ve Seen Paree?)” is a World War I song that rose to popularity after the war had ended. The music is by Walter Donaldson. The lyrics highlight concern that American soldiers from rural environments would not want to return to farm life after experiencing the European city life and culture of Paris during World War I. It became popular among soldiers in the First World War and is remembered as one of the more songs of World War I.
This skillful and fun arrangement by Jari Villanueva captures the flavor of the original tunes and would be a great selection commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I.
Included is a Full Score and parts for Brass Quintet with optional parts for Eb Horn and Treble Clef Baritone
