Product Details


Take your students on an auditory trip through the streets of Brazil with this challenging samba from Thom Sharp. Written for string orchestra, drum set, and caxixi (a large gourd shaker), Samba for a Sunday Afternoon provides the perfect opportunity to incorporate your school's percussion students into your string program. Every section gets a shot at the melody supported by the rhythmic intricacies and contemporary harmonies found in the music of Brazil. Don't be surprised to see your audience gently swaying in their seats as your students play this dance-worthy level 4 samba. If your school has an active percussion ensemble, you could incorporate a whole drum line in place of the drum set! (3:00)
