Holiday for Strings
This popular jazz standard has nothing to do with Christmas. "Holiday" has been used in music to describe something particularly festive, and this arrangement of David Rose's classic is no exception. Made popular by Leroy Anderson and Red Skelton's TV programs, the piece is a show stopper. This fresh new handbell arrangement (the first in nearly thirty years) sounds much harder than it is, and makes a fantastic concert closer or encore! Performance tips and hints for simplification in the hardest spots are included.
