Description

Ralph Hicks’ clever and entertaining arrangement of Charles Owen’s classic theme and variations is now available for a full concert band! This version preserves the myriad of musical styles presented in Owens' original, the waltz, rhumba, tango, lento, allegro, galop, and presto, while expanding the accompaniment to a full wind ensemble. Just like Ralph Hicks' percussion ensemble arrangement, the option to play or omit the written cadenza is still available to the soloist. This is a great opportunity to showcase the talent of a percussion program and makes for an interesting and entertaining concert program!

The concert band version of Chopsticks comes as a full, bound score and includes a CD-ROM containing individual parts and an audio recording.
