    This is a wonderful piece for any advanced middle school/early high school orchestra. Each section will enjoy the interesting and sometimes quite challenging parts. Note that a strong first violin section with good intonation is key - much of the song accesses the extended range where pitches will come off...

    as shrill when the section does not play in tune. Definitely consider playing this at your next school orchestra concert!
