Haunted Sleigh Ride is based on "Jingle Bells" but shifted to a minor key, transforming a winter favorite into an eerie adventure into the snowy unknown. We may not be "laughing all the way." Brian Beck's setting is jam-packed with various style and dynamic markings as well as accidentals in every part, challenging musicians, and engaging audiences. Shifting a piece from major to minor (or vice versa) will instantly illuminate a melody and breathe new life into a piece. What was happy is now sad, what was dark is now vibrant, and, in this case, what was cheerful is now spooky. Correlated to Sound Innovations for Concert Band, Book 2, Level 4.
