  • Notes & Instrumentation

    You need at least 6 players to perform this piece, but this can be expanded to as many as you might want. You have a lot of freedom when performing the piece with repeated sections and instrument substitutions. Effective piece for any level – playable by a middle school ensemble!

    1. Great for larger, younger ensembles

      My percussion ensemble performed this with 14 players, and it was not only lots of fun for them and the audience, but the kids learned a lot from it, and it has a lot of replayability if you move kids around the different parts. on Nov 14th 2017
