This arrangement for strings follows the original work by Leroy Anderson but is playable by most high school string ensembles. Students must be comfortable with the key of Bb, yet all parts remain in first position with minimal extensions. While the addition of sleigh bells is part of the tradition of this work, the whip crack and wood block parts are playable from within the string section by using some creative means. However, these optional percussion parts are included.
