dc.description.abstract A wind band transcription of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 18, Allegro Scherzando offered ample opportunity to experiment with different tone colors and orchestrations, as it was a work that translated well to the wind band medium. In the transcription, the integrity and character of the original work for solo piano and orchestra remained intact through a transformation to a solo piano and reduced wind band instrumentation. The continual demand for quality wind band repertoire and the recent need for reduced-instrumentation repertoire due to the COVID-19 pandemic were both addressed through this transcription. Additionally, wind band repertoire is lacking a substantial representation of works transcribed by females. As a female composer, arranger, and transcriber, I felt an immense amount of responsibility to represent females in a positive light in the field of wind band transcriptions and to promote, advocate, and support fellow and future female transcribers.
