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? :?:

perhaps.. but then we'd have to put up with the Oompa Loompa song on a Bass Trombone.. :shock:

..

Edit.. everyone that reads this is going to have that blasted song stuck in their heads for the erst of the day now.. :twisted: It...just...won't...go...away....

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
 
I think so!! I coped for 2 months then got the hell out of there, phew. Those southeners could have driven me to insanity.

?

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 :!:
