Many thanks to Alfred Publishing and particularly Alfred’s Licensing Administrator, Mr. Michael Worden!  With Michael’s assistance we were able to work out an amicable licensing agreement with Alfred for a few arrangements to start and hopefully many more in the future… 

Currently these arrangements will only be available in print media and will be USPS Priority mailed to you within 24 hrs.  The comb bound score and parts should arrive within (3-6) business days of purchase.  Unfortunately for the time being as well, these arrangements can only be offered to US customers.  We will be working on this!  Due to printing and licensing costs they will be a bit more expensive than similar arrangements, but at least when they arrive you will be ready to rehearse immediately!

The newest arrangements are available for Saxophone Quartet, Clarinet Quartet, String Quartet and Woodwind Quartet and they are:

In the “Genre” Seasonal/Special Event

"Santa Claus is Coming To Town"

"Sleigh Ride"

"Winter Wonderland"

In the “Genre” Dixieland/Jazz:

"The Days of Wine and Roses"

"The Charleston"
