    LAST YEARS *SMASH HIT* RELEASE...

    A Partridge In A Pear Tree (Section 4+)
    Arr. Gavin Somerset

    The perfect Christmas concert finale!!! The Twelve Days of Christmas is known for being one of the most tedious pieces for any band to play – now the band get their own back! As the M.D starts to conduct the “Twelve Days Of Christmas”, the band has other ideas. Throughout the piece, well-known carols are blasted out from all corners of the stage. This item is ideally suited for each band to add their own choreography. As the M.D fights to keep the front row playing all twelve days, the trombones stand to blast out Jingle Bells, the horns decide to join in and the back row then show their retaliation by giving a round of “Once In Royal David’s City” – and the fun goes on. Eventually the M.D & front row finally loose their battle and give in at the end to a rousing line of “We Wish you a Merry Christmas”. Fanfares, Jazz Waltz’s and Christmas bedlam leave your audience in stitches and wanting more!!!
