Holiday Programming for Young String Orchestras

Here are Stanton’s Sheet Music’s top Holiday choices of the best sounding, most educationally valid and most highly programmable selections from Hal Leonard’s latest string orchestra promotion:

ONE WINTER NIGHT (All Is Calm, All Is Bright)
Grade 2, Arr. John Moss
A gentle setting based on melodic sections of Silent Night that could easily become the highlight of a holiday program.

LITTLE SAINT NICK
Grade 2, Beach Boys/arr. Larry Moore
Something different for a holiday concert with that “surfer” sounding, Beach Boys harmonized melody that everyone gets to share.

CHRISTMAS LULLABY
Grade 2, Arr. Andrew Dabczynski
An older arrangement, recorded for the first time in a promotion, this gently lilting 15th century carol is a nice change of pace.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, DARLING
Grade 2, Frank Pooler and Richard Carpenter/arr. Larry Moore
The Carpenters had a hit with this lovely Christmas ballad in the 1970s and now you can too at your holiday concert!
