    Program Notes
    Topsy Turvy was written for the C. Alan Publications Ignite Series, which features entertaining yet flexible pieces for young percussion ensembles. It is meant to conjure up all of the fun one might experience at the circus.

    PERFORMANCE NOTES
    - If the Bells are doubled with Vibraphone, do not use the Optional Vibraphone part.
    - If the Xylophone part is doubled with Marimba, it is fine to use the Optional Marimba part. Both parts are playable on one 4-octave instrument.
    - The extra “Toys” part has been extracted from the Toys in the Bells and Xylophone parts and the Police Whistle in the Bass Drum part. Therefore, if you use an extra player or two to cover these “Toys,” do not duplicate in the other parts.
    - You might even consider putting these extra “Toy” players in front of the ensemble as a fun visual effect in the performance.
