I finally got to play Wizard's Walk at a contra! With completely ridiculous piano runs, over-the-top violin pyrotechnics (if such things can be said to exist), and stuff! It was pretty much exactly how I always dreamed of playing it.

I normally tend to favor a certain amount of restraint while playing music for dancers. However, Wizard's Walk sort of begs to be played in a style full of nutty harmonies and huge quantities of bombast.

I was somewhat less a fan of driving 50 miles through the snow to get to Elverson, as well as missing Magic State Championships due to this gig, but it still may have been worth it.

Giant Robot Dance played it as a jig at the Butterball.

Ooh, jig-to-reel set...

Good tune. Not especially flute-friendly, alas.
