Written as the Grand Finale for a combined school String Festival, this piece is dedicated to the Junior String players of Somerville House Girls’ School, Brisbane Queenwood School for Girls, Sydney and Brisbane Boys’ College. My esteemed colleagues Anne Sweeney and Theo Kotzas are to be commended for their dedication to quality string teaching in Australia. Whilst some of the rhythms used may seem a little difficult at first, the fact that they are repetitive makes them a great deal easier for the students to grasp. The piece is challenging and fun, and will prove an excellent addition to your school’s concert program. Suitable for advanced primary or intermediate high school. The piano covers the bass and essential harmonies.
