Highland/Etling String Orchestra
Conductor Score & Parts
The jazzy melodies and bouncy style will make this piece an audience favorite, but directors will appreciate the often-overlooked skills that the piece teaches. Throughout this selection, beginning string players switch from "bow hand" to "pizzicato hand," making the orchestra look like a porcupine, raising and lowering its quills! An optional drum part adds a bossa nova beat to this charming tune. This title is available in SmartMusic.
