American Patriotic Tunes for String Ensemble
Arr. Robert Gardner
String Ensemble - Mixed
Just for strings! Flexible instrumentation for small ensembles, mixed grade levels, or the string orchestra. Perfectly arranged at an intermediate level. The violin and viola books include the melody and two harmony lines, while the cello and bass books include the melody, a harmony line, and a bass line. Mix and match! Titles: America (My Country, 'Tis of Thee) * America the Beautiful * When Johnny Comes Marching Home * The Star Spangled Banner * Over There * The Army Goes Rolling Along * Battle Hymn of the Republic * Marines' Hymn * Battle Cry of Freedom * The Yankee Doodle Boy * Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean * American Patrol * You're a Grand Old Flag * Semper Fidelis.
"This compilation of 14 patriotic songs is well-suited for special performances not traditionally covered in string repertoire."
