Ode to Joy by Beethoven – the famous theme from The Ninth Symphony arranged for young players.
This arrangement is suitable for school orchestras and ensembles. The arrangement allows for a great deal of flexibility in
presentation and will sound complete with as few as four players yet the scoring allows for expansion up to a full symphonic orchestra, concert band or brass band.
As with all music available from davidcatherwoodmusic.com this arrangement has been well tried and tested in performance – In this case by the Campbell College Orchestra where this orchestra of around forty players use arrangements such as this regularly in Services and concerts in the college.
