This arrangement was written for a middle school orchestra to perform at the National Anthem Project road show. With the exception of the optional notes in the 1st violin, everything in the arrangement corelates with most 2nd year orchestra books. The meter change at the end is in essence a written in fermata and allargando. While you may vary the tempo, there is no need to do so with a young group. Some of the goals I had for this version: 1. Each section would at some time play the melody. 2. It would be creative but still traditional. 3. The low key would facilitate audience singing. 4. Hopefully, the students will enjoy playing it. (This appears to be the case.)
