Chester Arranged by Bill Calhoun. For String Orchestra. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # BAS61, UPC: 798408094539)

A Revolutionary War favorite, Chester will not only bring a sense of history to a young string concert, but will offer an opportunity to dicuss the concept of antiphonal entrances as well as the differences between a march and a chorale.  For a little ego boost, the second violins often introduce the melody, which is then "answered" by the rest of the group, yet all parts have equal importance.  So you can Integrate with a social studies American history unit, get some real teaching done with it and have a good concert number to boot.
