Listen closely and you'll hear them coming . . . it's the Cello Squadron to the rescue! This fun and exciting section feature has it all---roaring airplane engines (on cello C strings of course!), "dive-bombing" glissandos, and a heroic main theme based on Wagner's famous Ride of the Valkyries. Designed to give everyone in the orchestra a chance to learn and practice their triplet rhythms, this piece is sure to spark the imagination of all of your students. Correlates with String Explorer Book Two, unit 5. This title is available through SmartMusic.
