Program Notes

Off we go enjoying our traditional holiday sleigh ride. However, this time the horse gets a bit skittish and begins to speed up. With each passing phrase, our simple ride turns into the wildest of holiday adventures. In a very fun and entertaining setting, students will learn to watch the conductor while experiencing a wide range of tempi. As an option, you may wish to feature the accessory percussion/sound effect part "front and center" making The Runaway Sleigh a hilarious and hair-raising experience for all!

The Runaway Sleigh is dedicated to Savanah and Madison in celebration of holidays past, present and future.
