Leroy Anderson's music is always infectious and compelling. This wonderful flourish celebrates the clunky office machinery of yesteryear. You may have to teach a little history to your students so that they actually understand what a manual typewriter sounds like. It's a zany sound but the enthusiasm is unmatchable. Your percussionists will love the challenge. This Floyd Werle arrangement is freshly engraved with a full score and brand new parts!
