Silhouettes Composed by Alan Lee Silva. For String Orchestra. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # FAS81, UPC: 798408091347)

Grade 1.5 pieces can end up kind of stodgy. This one is anything but! It offers your students many stylistic opportunities - legato melodies, driving, marcato phrases, quiet pizzicatos - while cleverly linking second violins with violas and cellos with basses for support, but giving them contrasting parts. The end result sounds very mature. There are some short, cantabile solos for your concertmaster, and everyone has just enough action to keep them busy.
