This is the forty-ninth in a series of arrangements composed/arr./trans. for use in Solo/Ensemble contests and will help fill the need for new material for competing middle school and high school players. Each of these ensembles are selected to show the very best qualities of your ensemble and through careful editing, each has a professional sound with only an average playing ability.


Here’s one you haven’t heard arranged for a trumpet choir before. We did this on a concert about three years ago with the Taneycomo Festival Orchestra and it took me three years to finally put it on a score for a trumpet choir.


I love this piece!
