This will require some rehearsals for there are many stop and goes as well as key changes. The first and second trumpet parts require double tonguing and the trumpet 1, horn and trombone are up there. The end has a swing section and trumpet 1 ends on a high D. This would be a challenging number for a high school group and would make an excellent home concert or contest piece.
