Your band will sound BIG on this setting of "Ode To Joy" scored especially for bands with limited or unbalanced instrumentation. As conductor, you get to create a unique band sound using the strengths of your instrumentation and following the suggested flexible interplay between sections. All players will appreciate that they get to share the melodic spotlight. Optional parts for guitar, piano, bass and percussion can be utilized to fill in the band using the Build-A-Band format. This flexible system of scoring really works! A good choice for a massed band of elementary, middle and high school musicians. First class!

About Build-A-Band Series

The Build-A-Band Series provides educational and enjoyable music for bands with incomplete or unbalanced instrumentation. Written using just four or five parts (plus percussion), these effective arrangements will work with any combination of brass, woodwind, string and percussion instruments as long as you distribute the parts so that each of the five parts is covered. All of the publications in the Build-A-Band Series have been arranged to be playable with any instrumentation as long as each part is used: 1st Part, 2nd Part, 3rd Part, 4th Part, and Bass Part. (Please note: In some of these arrangements the 4th Part, and the Bass Part are the same, making it possible to play those arrangements with only 4 parts.)
