“High schoolers will find much to enjoy in this latest addition to this attractive series...My students 'road-tested' these excellent arrangements to much acclaim at a vice-chancellor's reception and shortly afterward at a wedding. Their favorite piece: the exuberant Arrival of the Queen of Sheba; my favorite, and elegant arrangement of Mozart's 'Voi che sapete' from The Marriage of Figaro. Highly enjoyable and satisfying fare.”--Strings magazine
