Conductor Score & Parts
Swing it with Levitation, an uptempo 12-bar blues shuffle in the key of C. Authentic jazz for the string orchestra, Levitation is arranged with written out solos for each instrument that can be played by one student or an entire section, includes cool swing rhythms, and also features a vamp in the middle for a conversation between two sections of the orchestra. Percussion and piano parts add the finishing touches to the true jazz sound.
