Concerto for Sleigh Bells and Strings is a delightful selection for that important holiday concert. The composer has used segments from several familiar holiday songs which are within the limited ranges and skills of young players. The part for sleigh bells is the unifying factor in the piece and must be played with a steady tempo throughout. Jingle Bells, Good King Wenceslas, Up On the House Top, Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and The Twelve Days of Christmas all appear in abbreviated form.
You are looking at a terrific crowd pleaser which also teaches string techniques - a winning combination for everyone.
