    I was pleased to remember this piece as I only have 12 in my high school concert band. Chester is simple melody, arranged in a very straight-forward manner. The scoring is thin at the opening (horn doubles clarinet + snare--percussion is the most sophisticated including sixteenth note patterns, whereas...

    quarter notes dominate the other voices), and I will use just horn, gradually adding trumpets on clarinet parts to create the building effect. There is enough doubling that I am able to have full scoring/instrumentation with only one woodwind.
