The arrangement of this piece, earlier released by Eighth Note Publications, proved to outsell all others. It's popularity has caused a demand by students in mid high school to have an arrangement of this same piece that is more approachable by them. The result is this arrangement, which has been transposed into B-flat concert. This allows the top notes in the solo trumpet part to be high Cs as opposed to the more advanced version that required high Fs from the first trumpet player. None of the melodic material has been sacrificed but the technique and range requirements in all the parts is such that a high school ensemble could tackle this arrangement as a showpiece for the first trumpeter.
