Santa Claus is Coming to Town was written in 1934 by Fred Coots and HavenGillespie. Although it was a big sheet music seller at the time, it was Perry Como’s 1951 recording that turnedit into a major hit. The simple harmony and melody have made this a perennialfavourite with everyone from Sinatra tothe Jacksons, Maria Carey and Bruce Springsteen. This versionborrows from the swinging jazz style of various Sinatra recordings and is arrangedas a duet for oner Violin and one Viola.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above willfind this ideal for formal and informal Christmas performances. There are syncopatedswing rhythms and some less familiar accidentals. The overall performance time isaround two and a half minutes. The sample recording is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone version of this duet.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to helpwith jazz rhythms and articulation.
