This is the twenty-fourth 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.


I spent a great deal of time on this very convertible arrangement of this well-known march so that any combination of players up to a trio would be able to perform this on a program or just for fun. The options as well as a recording are listed below.
