Program Notes

This rock and roll-themed arrangement of the traditional Ukranian Bell Carol is a fresh new sound for a winter concert. Intertwined with other classic holiday melodies, Robert W. Smith has truly gone Beyond The Bell Carol. With optional solo guitar, bass guitar and drum set parts, the opportunity to feature an entire band program is included throughout this arrangement. There is even a solo section that can be opened up to feature individual wind soloists.
