SEASON'S BEATINGS is a quirky collection of offbeat holiday arrangements for percussion ensemble. Renaissance man Jesse Mattson takes eleven of our most cherished tunes of the season and turns them on their head!

All pieces are scored at the beginning-to-intermediate level for 8 to 10 players using standard percussion instrumentation. They are designed to be used either as stand-alone pieces or as interludes within a holiday concert program. Using the included transition suggestions, you can mix and match to create your own wintery suites!

Season's Beatings includes individual parts in PDF format for printing or tablet viewing, and reference audio files.
