This well-known holiday favorite receives a new twist in this arrangement for first-year players. The clever setting is written to be performed as a full-band piece or as a percussion ensemble feature for seven players. Another performance option is to have the band play the opening two bars followed by just the percussion performing the first time through. On the repeat the band can join in for a full-ensemble finish, making a nice change in presentation - perfect for any holiday or winter band concert.

We Wish You a Coolcat Christmas is a fun little arrangement for very young players, another in the continuing series from Gary P. Gilroy that gives young band students a fun holiday selection while developing their skills. The percussion parts contain several optional parts in case there are plenty of players, and carefully chosen notes and rhythms make the work very achievable while featuring virtually all sections of the band on the melody at one point or another.
