CAROLS FOR AUDIENCE AND ORCHESTRA Many orchestras, both amateur and professional, have Christmas concerts in which the audience is encouraged to ’sing-a-long’ some carols, so here is the very thing - an arrangement that gives the orchestra something more to do than just play a ’hymn-book’ version! The audience is of course in unison but you could divide them into groups for the different days.

I’ve tried to give the orchestra a different sound for each day i.e. bird calls (not authentic!) for the first four days; 5 ’dings’ for five rings!; muted (wow) 3rd Trombone for the cows moos (they don’t actually moo do they!) Swans = wavy music; pipers = bagpipes etc. etc.

Please remember that the whole arrangement will sound considerably better than the score playback!!!

All these ’Carols for Audience’ have been played by the Kent Concert Orchestra at their yearly Christmas Concerts in the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury and now by various orchestras all over the world due to the wonders of Score Exchange. Scoring: 1 Flute; 1 Picc.(Fl. 2) 2,2,2: 4,2,3,1: Timps: Sus. Cymb., S.Drum: Harp(optional): Strings. Please look at other ’Carols for Audience and Orchestra’.
