MUSIC FOR ORCHESTRA

The GOODMUSIC ORCHESTRAL SERIES is an extensive series of orchestral music with titles suitable not only for schools,
        youth orchestras and amateur orchestras but professionals and any orchestra looking for shorter concert works.

Each title is conveniently packaged in a plastic pocket containing a full score and a complete set of parts which comprises one of each wind,
brass and percussion part and string parts 4/4/3/4/2 plus any solo, keyboard or harp parts (unless otherwise stated). Where any alternative
string parts such as 3rd violin are available, similar quantities are included. These packs represent excellent value for money.
Although the PACKS are a convenient and cost-effective way of buying our orchestral music, EXTRA PARTS and EXTRA SCORES are
available for all titles. Standard full scores are A4 in size, but for some more complex, larger works an A3 sized score is also on sale.
