This fun polka classic is presented here in an arrangement for the instrumentation of Alford’s “Hungry Five” series of Polka band books. In this edition of the song, each instrument or section gets featured at some point. The brasses begin with a trumpet lead, the clarinets take over the melody for a strain, and to wrap things up even the tuba and trombone get featured solos with varying accompaniments from the remaining instruments.
There are no extreme range or technical challenges in this arrangement for the most part, so even fairly young ensembles could use this to include some polka fun on a German band performance. Ready to go for your Oktoberfest gig!
(Please note that the demo recording substitutes Soprano Sax and Trumpets for the Clarinet parts, but they still sound as written)
