Looking for a way to get your audience's attention for announcements other than tapping on the microphone or trying to yell over the din in the auditorium? Well, here you go! This short but stately piece has just enough punch to get the job done. And because it's so brief, you could use it more than once in a performance if needed. Have students exaggerate the "Shh!" at the end for a properly humorous final touch.
