This is the forty-third 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.


This is the perfect solo for a young performer for the range, technique and dynamics are all suited to this level of player.


All you “comeback” players would enjoy this one also for nothing rebuilds confidence better than a solo of this difficulty.


This is one of the most beautiful, yet simple melodies and would be perfect for an offering collection in a small church.


This arrangement includes the solo, a piano part alone, a complete score as well as a recording of the piano part for practice purposes or for use in a live performance.
