Dvorak’s 8th Symphony is often referred to as his Pastoral symphony for its optimistic and uplifting themes. With contrasting melancholy minor and lighthearted major folk-like melodies, this arrangement of the Adagio second movement features dramatic dynamics, solo lines, and thick, lush harmonies for advanced string orchestra.

Written in 1779 after his return from Paris, Mozart’s lively Symphony No. 32 loosely follows the form of an Italian overture. Cleverly arranged here without the slow andante section, this energetic work offers students an authentic, playable experience with a great piece of classical repertoire.

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!

A lyrical piece for string orchestra inspired by the composer's childhood experience living along the eastern shore of Connecticut. The three sections of this composition represent the towns of New London, Mystic, and Stonington, with a return to New London in the end. Soaring melodies and flowing legato lines provide an excellent opportunity to work on phrasing, tone, and dynamic expression.

The finale of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 is a fantastic orchestral movement. It is very grand in nature and appears to reflect Tchaikovsky’s nationalist writing tendencies. The work opens with a powerful theme that moves to an aggressive faster section. Beautiful melodies are introduced, building to a majestic return of the opening theme. The movement closes with a strong and exciting finale. Includes optional timpani.

Inspired by a photo of a ghostly, forgotten ballroom in Shanghai, Phantom Waltz is a melancholy echo of the past. This 6/8 piece features two solo cellos, melodramatic melodies, and colorful accidentals for dramatic effect. A cinematic, emotional, and richly textured work for string orchestra. Optional viola solo parts are included.

Work on shifting technique with a powerhouse rock performance! Driving, accented bass lines and syncopated melodies energize this original piece that follows the form and style of pop song standards. Carefully written melodies give every instrument the chance to practice shifting to third position and beyond, as well as harmonics, extended C-sharp finger patterns, and pizzicato riffs. Add a rocking drumset for a dynamite presentation.

A fast, exciting piece for orchestra! Maintaining a triplet feel throughout, this homage to the historic sport of horse racing gallops forward in steady 12/8, offering students the opportunity to practice a rapid sautillé, or light spiccato bow stroke. Accented melodies and driving rhythms push this race toward a climactic finish. Includes optional percussion.

Sea shanties (or chanteys) were folk songs sung a capella by sailors to set a rhythm for specific tasks on a ship performed in unison. 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.
