    Amazing Grace and Simple Gifts SO
    Features:

    Arranged for a beginning string group, these easy-to-play folk hymns are recommended for school programs, worship services, and recitals. This textured arrangement of Amazing Grace features four variations. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has recorded Simple Gifts, a folk hymn that has become part of the classical music tradition, and he performed the tune with violinist Itzhak Perlman and others at President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration.

    Original Latin Songs for Beginning String Orchestra
    Features:

    Beginning string ensembles will enjoy Mimi's Minor Mambo, a dance tune inspired by the traditional Afro-Cuban music played by the Caribbean island nation's charanga ensembles. Charanga, sometimes called the grandfather of salsa, combines several European musical ideas - such as harmony, instrumentation, and form - with the complex rhythmic structures of Afro-Cuban music. Sambasaurus is inspired by Brazilian samba. Expand your skill sets by playing these two originals with your string quintet or student string orchestra.

    Scottish Tunes for Beginning String Orchestra SO
    Features:

    Incorporate these Scottish airs into your set as a nice break from faster tunes. Arranged for advanced beginning or intermediate string orchestra, these two slow tunes in the key of G are somber, yet neither is in a minor key. Tonight My Sleep Will Be Restless is a traditional Argyllshire air of unknown authorship first printed in a 1784 book. The easier of the two pieces, Lamentation for James Moray of Abercarney, should be played with a great deal of rubato. Enjoy its simple beauty.

    Splash of Purple - String Orchestra SO
    Features:

    A Splash of Purple was written in memory of an eighth grade violist named Amaris whose favorite color was purple. The first theme is based on a song she created and sang regularly called “Pancakes and Waffles”. The pancakes and waffles rhythm permeates this first upbeat section. The contrasting second section is based on the motive “Glamorous Amaris” and wavers around Lydian Mode. Throughout this section, the moving eighth notes should be predominant as they are passed from instrument to instrument.
