Instrumentation Requirements

The more low brass on these two, the better.
  • Night on Bald Mountain
The more low brass the better. Also a strong front line.
  • The Batman Theme
Sounds best with a balanced band.

Roadmap

  • Theme from Jaws
The first 8 measures are the familiar "baa dum ... baa dum" which is cool, but too hard to hear. Start at measure 9.
  • Night on Bald Mountain
Again, the beginning is familiar and classic, but a little hard to hear in the stands sometimes. Also, with only 15 seconds, you hardly make it out of the opening. Start at measure 8.

History

  • Songs were sometimes unofficially referred to by their own number (eg: Night on Bald Mountain would be 0.23).
  • Some of these songs were incorporated into the new cheer sheets in early 2007. It is unlikely this page will get called much as a result.
