Olympic Harmony

Olympic Harmony enables participants to imagine they are at the opening ceremony of the world’s greatest sporting event. It opens with a fanfare on brass instruments, which sets out the first two lines of the tune. A driving drum beat follows, then a rhythmic piano part introduces Verse 1 of the song. The tune is ‘pentatonic’, which means it only uses five different notes – in this case F, G, A, C and D. Various forms of pentatonic melody are common in folk traditions all over the world, with many examples from Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. In the West, famous examples of pentatonic songs include Amazing Grace and Mull of Kintyre.
