This is a flexibly orchestrated score for middle school symphonic band & orchestra. It was specifically orchestrated to allow for changes in tone colours from year to year. Why? Because this score was intended for international school children, who typically move every two years. The first time this score was performed, there was a tenor horn; the second time it was performed, there was a bassoon, so I know two things for sure about this score:
1) It's always successful - a huge hit at concerts
2) It's forever changing as my group changes.
So how is it flexible? You will be receiving the datafile of the transcription, which is in *.mus format (Finale). Simply take a look at your group's membership and decide which instruments you need. Then load this file into Finale and click the "Change Instrument" button on which ever stave needs changing!

- Score poster
