Using only the first six notes of D major and easy rhythms, Pizzicato Holidays, arranged by Chris M. Bernotas, is perfect for beginning string students' first concert. The introduction and ending bookends include a hint of "O Christmas Tree," along with "Up on the Housetop"; "The Dreydl Song;" "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen"; and "Auld Lang Syne." All sections play the melody in turn and have interesting parts throughout. Violin 2 and viola are doubled, as are cello and string bass. A simple sleigh bell part is included but optional. A wonderful selection to ring in the holidays! (2:25)
