Sing praise is an upbeat opener or concertpiece that is based on the Old Hundreth. It was a commission by Flevo Brass Emmeloord to praise the conductor/teacher Klaas de Jong. I know Klaas as a high-spirited teacher who always devotes his time to guiding young players and developing music ensembles by investing in youth bands and music education.
The title is a reference to the hymn tune the Old Hundreth and a message to ensembles to sing praise to teachers and youth.
Sing praise can be performed as a piece for brassband, a piece for 4 part flexibele youth band and a combination of both.
