Introducing PerformancePlus+

SmartMusic and Alfred Music have joined forces to bring you the newest innovation in performance music—the PerformancePlus+ Series. These engaging selections for concert band, orchestra, and choir are presented with educational resources designed to enrich the rehearsal process and create outstanding performances.

When you access PerformancePlus+ titles through SmartMusic, that’s when the “plus” really kicks in! Directors and students will get the best of Alfred Music’s carefully edited repertoire, the composer’s educational resources, and SmartMusic’s powerful assignment and assessment tools.
