Variations of the song "Happy Birthday to You" by Patty and Mildred Hill have entertained audiences by talented musicians for over a century. This collection of 6 variations for string quartet (or 3 violins and 1 cello) blends the "Happy Birthday" theme with famous classical pieces. These arrangements have been shortened significantly from their original score and simplified when needed so that each song takes less than 2 minutes to perform.

These medleys add a fun surprise birthday wish when presented during a recital or other gathering. The Violin 3 part is the same as the Viola part in case a Viola player is not available. This is an excellent arrangement for a late beginner to intermediate string group since all notes on the violin and viola can be played in the first position and up to the second position for the cello. The purchase price includes the full 5 staff score plus a 1 page score for each part for all six variations.

Each of the 6 variations is also available separately with accompanying preview pages and audio samples.

Titles in this collection include:
Happy Birthday by Bach with Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
Happy Birthday by Beethoven with Symphony No. 5
Happy Birthday by Handel with The Hallelujah Chorus
Happy Birthday by Mozart with Symphony No. 40
Happy Birthday by Pachelbel with Canon in D
Happy Birthday by Vivaldi with The Four Seasons: Spring
