Festival Ensembles, Book 2

Playing in a variety of ensembles is an important component in the complete education of young instrumentalists. Festival Ensembles, Book 2 presents a collection of 15 flexibly scored ensemble pieces (Grade 2-2.5) perfect for festivals, concerts, summer camps, and variety chamber practice throughout the year.

The KJOS Multiple Option Scoring allows each arrangement to be performed as a solo, as an ensemble piece of any size or instrumentation, or as a full concert band work.

Book 2 is perfect for festivals, concerts, summer camps, and private study! Great for groups with non-standard instrumentation. With limited ranges and easy rhythms, the unequaled versatility of Book 2 makes this a must for every young band library!
