Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Circus music (also known as carnival music) is any sort of music that is played to accompany a circus, and also music written that emulates its general style. The most common type of circus music is the circus march, or screamer, which are marches played at very fast tempos. Popular music would also often get arranged for the circus band, as well as waltzes, foxtrots and other dances. Such bands would accompany the acts, as well as giving a B-flat chord as a stinger (usually onomatopoeically rendered into English as "ta-daa") to signify a successful trick.show more
