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.
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:

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