Pop Showcase for Strings, for solo or string orchestra, is a collection of 13 popular songs that can be played as a solo with piano or CD accompaniment, or with a string orchestra with or without the CD or piano.
Each selection is presented in two arrangements, a solo and a complete string orchestra piece. The solo section is written so that it can be played as a solo or in unison (or octaves) together by any ensemble, including the entire orchestra, with or without piano accompaniment. The arrangement for string orchestra that follows uses the same rhythms and melodic lines included in the solo section. The first song can be played after the first six notes are learned in any string method and the pieces progress to about a level two.
These arrangements are excellent supplements for enhancing any student's knowledge of popular music from the 20th century and are great concert material.
