A wonderful opportunity for first year string players to work on legato bowing. After an original introduction, the full ensemble plays the African-American spiritual "Deep River." Cellos and basses usher in the early English folk song "The Water is Wide," and this delightful arrangement ends with a lovely treatment of the American classic "Shenandoah." Includes an educational packet with each part that features technical exercises, history, theory, composition, and more. This title is available in SmartMusic.
