This is the fifty-seventh 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.


The introduction is new as well as every other four measure section.

I think this makes for an interesting number with the melody alternation with new material to give this arrangement a more concert adaptation.
