Irving Berlin's famous tune gets a swinging ragtime treatment from veteran writer Tom Johns. After an opening statement from the percussion section, the theme is heard and developed throughout the entire band. Feature your first chair musicians in a small dixie band soli. You'll need the bones on the tailgate for this one.

About FJH Young Band

Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5
