    Hi, does anyone know if there has ever been an arrangement of 'charlie and the chocolate factory' for brass band' ?
    Songs like 'pure imagination &golden ticket' would make for some brilliant solos dont you think? :?:

    i've got a perfect puzzle for you
    oompa loompa, doompadah dee
    if you are wise you'll listen me

    What do you do when you can’t play brass
    You get a big instrument and sit on your ass
    No need to practice you think you’re ace
    Now you know how to play the bass
    I don’t like the sound of it

    Oompa loompa doompadee dah
    if you are pants you will go far
    You will live in haziness too
    like the oompa loompa bassplayers do
    they smell of poo


    Oh Dear - soz chaps couldn't resist

    Sam, this is what playing for Ransomes does to you. Leave while you're still half sane, I got out just in time.

    ?

    Has turned out to be a funny post! But the question still remains -has there ever been an arrangement? It could be quite an epic piece. :D

    Just to let you know that the film was called Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The book was Charlie etc...., so maybe worth doing searches under the film name.

    There is talk that they are currently casting for a remake, so the added interest may inspire someone to arrange the music - if they use the same songs, that is :!:
