Saxophone Choir (SSAATTBB, + opt. Sn, Bs)

The Circus Bee by Henry Fillmore (arranged for saxophone choir) is one of the best known circus marches or screamers. This arrangement is for saxophone choir. It can also be played as a saxophone quartet by using the first parts SATB. Parts included with this arrangement are:

Sopranino Sax (optional)
Soprano Sax 1- 2
Alto Sax ‘A’  sub for Soprano 1
Alto Sax 1- 2

The alto sax ‘A’ (Soprano 1 substitute) has a very high range and is quite the workout on the palm keys.
