Groovin' Goliath

Groovin’ Goliath (and the slingshot of doom) for saxophone choir combines elements of blues, traditional and non-traditional tonal structures, shifting metrical landscapes, and saxophonic sound effects in this retelling of the epic tale of David and Goliath. The giant still loses the fight, but the biggest saxes reign supreme in this battle royale!

Commissioned by Dr. Jackie Lamar and the Arkansas Saxophones for the World Saxophone Congress in Zagreb, Croatia – July 2018.

Freelance composer/arranger Craig Wadley holds Bachelor of Music Education and Master of Music degrees from Arkansas State University. Mr. Wadley’s studies in composition were primarily with Dr. Jared Spears (Arkansas State University) and Dr. Kamran Ince (University of Memphis), and his works have been performed across the United States. As a saxophonist, Mr. Wadley studied with Ken Hatch (Arkansas State University) and Allen Rippe (University of Memphis), and has performed most notably with the Memphis Saxophone Quartet and The Temptations.
