||"Santaís Second String" was written in 1998 by Richard Baller. It is scored for Concert Band, Narrator, Donkey, and 7 Reindeer. (The Donkey and 7 Reindeer can be played by students...real animals donít work cheaply) There are a number of sound effects called for...so the percussion section will get a workout in this short, humorous work. A complete script and logistics are included with the score and parts. This is a wonderful way to brighten the usual Christmas concert.
