St. Louis Blues

Octaves Handbell:  3 – 5

Octaves Handchimes: n/a

Level: 4

 Here is a definite Show Stopper arrangement! To quote the arranger, various sections are labeled “Sultry”, “Mournful”, “Gutsy”, “Sassy”, and “Boisterous”. From the opening swing section through the final sassy boisterous section, the music builds tempo and intensity. There is an optional 10 measure section for handbells to vamp if a soloist is used. Toe tapping will definitely be necessary for everyone listening to this 85-measure piece performed.
