Cripple Creek (Score)

By Michael Hopkins

String Orchestra - Grade 3
Composed by Michael Hopkins. Score. Published by Grand Mesa Music (GC.GMMOR29-SCORE).

Item Number: GC.GMMOR29-SCORE

"Set in the key of D major, this arrangement of a well-known fiddle tune gives every section of the orchestra the melody. The piece lies very well under the fingers and requires no shifting except in the double bass. It is an excellent work for developing flexibility in the bow, for working on double stops, for playing chromatic slides, and for playing in an American folk fiddling style. Students and audiences will really enjoy this great high energy ending for a concert program!".
