Product Description

William Tell Overture Composed by Gioacchino Rossini. Arranged by Julie Eschliman. For SATB. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 23041, UPC: 038081222257)

It's hard to keep a straight face while singing this hilarious novelty arrangement for "serious" choirs. Sung entirely on syllables which imitate the sounds of Rossini's original orchestral percussion, brasses, and woodwinds, this one will be best when performed tongue in cheek. And from the initial fanfare to the final cadence, seasoned choirs will sound great on the full chords and percussive "Lone Ranger" themes. Awesome when performed a cappella, but equally impressive with the optional supportive piano accompaniment.
