Here is one of Mozart's most famous quartet movements, carefully transcribed for the medium-level string orchestra.  It remains very true to the original in style, nuance and bowings, but is slightly shortened and transposed from the original key of B-flat to G.  There's wonderful ensemble playing here, and each section will have fun rising to the occasion!

Though shanties were practical, most are very beautiful melodies as well. Chosen for their lyricism, these two expressive songs, Go To Sea Once More and The Banks of Newfoundland, are arranged for string orchestra with flowing phrases and interwoven harmonies that express a love for the sea.
