For our (approximately) 15 minutes of fame, the HONK! DisOrchestra Magnifico will play two original arrangements of Italian songs: “Bella Ciao” (Dm), and “Tarantella Napoletana” (Dm). We’ll follow these with two HONK! standards as time permits: “Second Line” (key of Bb) and “When the Saints Go Marching In” (key of F). Please familiar yourselves with these songs, learn your parts, and play along with the recordings below.
If you want these printed in “flip book” format, set your printer to print them “actual size,” otherwise use “fit to page.”

(There are some speedy passages in Tarantella, especially in the frenzied ending. If you find these difficult, just play the notes on the first and 4th beat of each measure.)
“Second Line” Note: I haven’t had time to fix these scores. The beginning is misleading, as written. Here’s how it’s gonna go: First, ONE trumpet player plays the four-note introductory fanfare. Then the conductor (me or Ed) signals everyone else to hit a concert Bb note. These things happen a second time. Then everyone starts the song, playing an “A A B B A A B B etc. pattern, with solos cued potentially anywhere, until the conductor stops the piece.
