Description

A classic holiday tune from A Charlie Brown Christmas, Skating can be quickly recognized by its cascading thirds heard in the opening theme, beckoning images of falling snow and, of course, skaters weaving through a field of ice. This transcription by Justin Lamb is written as a marimba and vibraphone duet with optional percussion parts to provide the jazz waltz feel underneath. Perfect for a holiday closer, this short work is tuneful and lively and features a virtuosic solo for the vibraphonist.

Skating ships as a printed, professionally bound score and a set of printed parts.

Instrumentation

Vibraphone

Marimba — 5-octave

Percussion (optional) — egg shakers, hi-Hat, ride cymbal, sleigh bells
