This is an epic arrangement pitting good against evil, the dark side from the light. From the very beginning, light (representing Little Richard) is attacked by the dark side (representing Beethoven) and the struggle continues to the very end. Back and forth the battle rages and only on the final cadence is the outcome finalized.


Your audience will be chuckling throughout the number and your performers must keep their cool as well as the final outcome.


This would be a great number as a encore on a classical concert!


Costumes are optional ……
