La Virgen de la Macarena is the most popular pasodoble used in bullfights. It was popularized as a solo work by trumpeter Rafael Mendez. This edition uses a flexible ensemble instrumentation for the accompaniment.
This versatile solo works great as a showpiece for either euphonium or trombone with a variety of accompaniments. The accompanying ensemble can be trombone sextet, tuba/euphonium ensemble, or simply a mix of low brass instruments. The solo part will prove challenging for high school to college age students, but the ensemble accompaniment should not be too difficult.
Score and parts included: solo euphonium/trombone BC/TC, euphonium/trombone BC/TC 1, 2, 3, tuba 1/trombone 4, tuba 2/trombone 5, tuba 3/bass trombone
