Television Hits for Orchestra! Tuesday, November 16, 2010

STRING TEACHERS!  You probably program a Pops Concert some time during the school year, so for a fresh new batch of outstandingly programmable popular and other lighter string orchestra titles, check out Hal Leonard Publishing’s recent national orchestra mailer that you should have gotten recently.  Here are Stanton’s top choices of the best sounding, most educationally valid selections from Hal Leonard’s pop music offerings.

BONANZA
Grade 2, Jay Livingston and Ray Evans/arr. Robert Longfield
One of the all-time favorite TV themes orchestrated expertly and boldly for young string players.

HAWAII FIVE-O
Grade 3/4, Mort Stevens/arr. Larry Moore
Memorable theme from both the sixties version and the brand new television series.  “Book ‘em Danno.”

DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’ (From Glee)
Grade 3/4, Journey/arr. Robert Longfield
1981 power rocker from the band Journey has been renewed on the TV series Glee and can now be a hit on your pops concert.
