2017 Holiday Contest Entry.

“I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas” is a holiday novelty  song originally performed by 10-year-old Gayla Peevey in 1953. In this unique  arrangement, the full quintet plays verses 1 and 3, but in the middle verse the trumpets and trombone SING in unison,  accompanied by the horn and tuba. No singing skill is required. And the lyrics are  silly enough to keep your audience smiling and laughing throughout.  Pure fun!! Scored for brass quintet: 2 B-flat trumpets, horn, trombone and  tuba. Performance time 3:30.
