"The Impossible Dream (The Quest)" is a popular song composed by Mitch Leigh, with lyrics written by Joe Darion. The song is the most popular song from the 1965 Broadway musical Man of La Mancha and is also featured in the 1972 film of the same name starring Peter O'Toole.

The song is sung all the way through once in the musical by Don Quixote as he stands vigil over his armor, in response to Aldonza (Dulcinea)'s question about what he means by "following the quest". It is reprised partially three more times – the last by prisoners in a dungeon as Miguel de Cervantes and his manservant mount the drawbridge-like prison staircase to face trial by the Spanish Inquisition. It was awarded the Contemporary Classics Award from the Songwriter's Hall of Fame.

This arrangement for brass quintet by Jari Villanueva captures the flavor of the original version. Perfect for a graduation ceremony or as part of a Broadway concert!

It is scored for:

2 Trumpets in Bb
Horn in F
Trombone
Tuba
Eb Alto Horn Substitute part for Horn in F
Treble Clef Baritone Substitute part for Trombone  

Jari Villanueva has been writing arrangements for decades. A student of Bill Holcombe, he continues writing for different ensembles. Many of his arrangements can be found on Sheet Music Plus. He is a winner of the 2016 Arranging Contest and Holiday Contest.
