Such a fun, cool song transformed into a sure-fire winner for any concert setting. These lovely variations begin with a lush air in 3/4, which flows into a 6/8 jig featuring players whistling over top the varied pizzicato accompaniments. A 16th note flurry in 4/4 then speeds to the end in a burst of energy! This title is available in SmartMusic.
