Toy Symphony Allegro

Dear orchestra director,

Here  is a flexible arrangement of the allegro movement of the well-known Toy  Symphony. The original scoring for the music was for toys, 1st and 2nd  violins, plus bass instruments.This arrangement provides parts for  violas as well, but more importantly, it provides parts for each  instrument to play any other part, e.g.,  violins can play the bass line, and cellos or basses can play the 1st or  2nd violin part, all, of course, transposed, to put the music in a  reasonable range for the particular instrument.  

Here are a few sample pdf's of the music.

Pomp and Circumstance

Processional Themes from Marches 1 & 4


Dear Band or Orchestra Director:

Welcome to the Key Route Music website. In 1995 we  published Robert Shafer's flexible, combinable, arrangement of Elgar's  Pomp and Circumstance: Processional Themes from Marches 1 and 4. It's  been played at middle school, high school, and university commencement  ceremonies ever since.

In this arrangement all wind, string, and even  percussion parts are written in two-staff format - the upper staff has  the melody, the lower staff - an ensemble line. Thus, players and  sections can solo, accompany, or tacit. What results is an unlimited  number of possible instrumental combinations that can be changed from  repetition to repetition, a feature useful in cases where there's a long  procession of graduates.

The well-known Pomp and Circumstance theme, the  Maestoso, is set in Bb and alternates with the Nobilmente in F. Included  is a "Conductor's Worksheet" which lets you schedule what sections or  players have the melody and when. You basically create your own  arrangement of the Pomp and Circumstance themes. 

We've posted some parts in pdf format if you want to sample a few of them:

1st & 2nd Eb Alto Saxophone

2nd BbTrumpet 

1st Trombone

String Bass

The arrangement is available in standard, combinable  instrumentations for Concert Band ($60), String Orchestra ($30), Full  Orchestra ($60), and Orchestra Winds/Percussion ($30).
