Product Description

This original short humorous piece could be used in a pops concert setting, or perhaps to break up an otherwise "heavy" concert program.

At the end of the first section, a cellist "forgets" to play pizzicato and give us a big arco "Ole'!" that immediately draws the scorn of the rest of the orchestra. Oddly enough, the same thing happens at the end of the second section, only this time the guilty party is a violist. Finally, in the middle of the third section, a second violinist lets go a hearty shouted "Hey!" at the end of a phrase.

It will probably come as a shock to the audience that there is no final gag or gimmick to close the piece out.
