Tired of playing the same old holiday tunes from the method on your winter concert? Then take a fresh approach with this exceptional arrangement that amazingly uses only six notes and note values no smaller than a quarter. Featuring both the Overture and Trepak from The Nutcracker, this arrangement will surprise you with how authentic it sounds, and your audience will be delighted to hear Tchaikovsky's masterwork performed by such young musicians! A fantastic way to get out of the method for a holiday program!
