As the Grand Finale to your Spring Concert, consider putting all your groups together from Beginners to High School for a Mass Festival presentation of Electric Sinfonia by Lauren Bernofsky. Scored with three levels of ability – Grades ½, 1½ and 2½ – your better players can easily nail down the upper part, you can put your starters on the easiest part (all pizzicato) and fill in the middle with everyone else. A constant eighth-note rock groove makes it easy for everyone to fit their part into the mix. Add some polish and your parents will be so proud!
