Flexible Band Series

This is the ultimate in flexibility with non standard instrumentation. This will allow ensembles with incomplete instrumentation to perform a wide variety of music from grade 1.5-3. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 wind/string players and percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for full band/orchestra. Great for music camps, contest use or any band that has incomplete instrumentation.
