Shadows in the House for String Orchestra and Drum Set composed by Thom Sharp. String orchestra. For string orchestra and drum set. Grade 2. Conductor's score and parts. Published by Latham Music Enterprises (LA.250486).

Grade 2 - This fast swing piece in G minor is reminiscent of the "Young Frankenstein" soft-shoe "Puttin' on the Ritz" (Cole Porter) or that wonderful spy-oriented animation from the early 1960s. Playfully sneaky, with a catchy, singable tune, this work features a tutti pizzicato section, as well as some melodic moments for bass and celli. All parts remain in first position, with a couple of "funky" accidentals thrown in for fun. The swing-eighth feel keeps the mood appropriately shadowy!
