This is the thirty-fifth 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.


Although the high trumpet part seems constant and difficult, the line is shared with several players in short segments.

The original sequencer was not listed on the original orchestra score or I would have given credit to that fine transcriber. Transcribing an orchestra down to a trumpet octet was a very difficult and time consuming project but I was very pleased with the outcome.

Be the first to program this on your 4th of July program and I guaranty, you will get a great response.
