A perennial favorite on concert and contest programs for decades, Nelhybel's Festivo has been re-scored to target the young band. Accessible to a wider variety of ensembles, this reduction is a welcomed addition to the literature. Bold and impressive, this arrangement will certainly be met with acclaim. Bravo!
