This would be a wonderful number for a young group wanting something for the local crowd. This is a well known and very easy number to put together. The first trumpet has the solo from the beginning to the end. All of the supportive parts are very easy as well. I have indicated rehearsal letters every eight measures to make the rehearsals go faster.

How many trumpet solos can you name that have a top note of only a fourth line D?
