Dancing King Wenceslas
Traditional / arr. Thom Sharp
Highland/Etling String Orchestra
Spiced up with lots of hand percussion parts, this fun-to-play arrangement of a Christmas classic dances its way through Latin, waltz, disco, and rock styles, all in first position. Every section gets multiple turns at the melody, insuring that all of the students are noticed and challenged. Rhythms that may be unfamiliar or difficult are repeated throughout the arrangement, simplifying the rehearsal process.
