    This music is difficult. You will have to practice, practice, practice, and you will break up, break up, break up while doing it. 24 tunes in 7 min. 30 sec. flat. Everyone gets to shine. Some of the tunes are: Santa Lucia, Beautiful Dreamer, Greensleeves, Barcarolle,The Worms Crawl In...

    , and of course, O Say Can You See By the Dawn's Early Light where the whole quartet stands for this bit. It was made even more hilarious by the fact that I am handicapped and so do not stand even when the maestro indicates the symphony to stand. However, what we do is this: we do a grand pause. Everyone stands up and then I struggle up from my seat so I am standing and then we play the national anthem. It causes chaotic laughter. Of course, then we sit down at the end of that bit and continue on. If you are capable you have GOT to play this! What FUN!
