The Sleigh Race

Every year, bands search for something new and different for their Christmas concerts. In this comedy item, originally composed for piano duet, the feeling of Christmas is ever-present. The playful melody is passed around the band, including a percussion solo (with cues for the band if no percussion is available). The audience can participate as they rattle keys to mimic the sound of sleigh bells. Of course, no comedy item would be complete without some singing from the band. This work is a treat for all concerned and is a piece that will make any Christmas concert come to life with something different.
