New Orchestra Music


A bluegrass carol for the holidays! Based on the traditional spiritual Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow, this lively carol combines Appalachian folk style with the joy of the season. Students will learn call-and-response form and alternating melody and accompaniment as the tune is passed from section to section. Syncopated rhythms, steady bass line, and old-time fiddle riffs will transport players and audiences to the snowy Smoky Mountains for a winter celebration. Includes violin 3 (viola in treble clef) and alternate viola (violin 2 in alto clef) parts.

One of Mozart’s best known string quartets, arranged for beginning orchestra. Set in easy first position with no slurs, this clever arrangement has been transposed to the key of G and arranged in 3/4 time instead of the original 6/8. Mozart’s original hunting horn-like motif is featured in this authentic arrangement, ensuring students can enjoy a staple of classical repertoire in their first years of playing. Includes violin 3 (viola in treble clef) and alternate viola (violin 2 in alto clef) parts.

This bluesy all-pizzicato piece is a great introduction to simple ties, slight syncopation, and optional swing-style playing. Students also get to practice easy alternating F- and C-natural and sharp in familiar first position. Every section gets to play the catchy melody, accompanied by an essential jazzy piano part. Includes Violin 3 (Viola in treble clef) and alternate Viola (Violin 2 in alto clef) parts.

Experience the grit and barbarity of the vikings' life in this fierce piece for developing strings! Heavy, marcato melodies are passed to every section, using only notes of the G and D major scales in first position, plus a little third position in the bass. Dynamic contrasts, warrior cries, and optional bass drum and anvil add extra drama and excitement for your next concert. Includes violin 3 (viola in treble clef) and alternate viola (violin 2 in alto clef) parts.
