It's called the "Dance of the Slippery Slide Trombones", but every section in the band gets to show off in this clever and humorous arrangement based on the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" from the "Nutcracker Suite". Lots of percussion parts to keep your drummers involved! Very impressive sound for more advanced bands with limited rehearsal time. FUN, FUN FOR ALL!
