This is an easy arrangement, which, through close scoring, makes the young string orchestra sound especially full. It is a grade 2 on the UIL PML, class D on the Florida MPA list, and NYSSMA Manual level 2.

About March of the Meistersingers
This arrangement is playable by all instruments in the first position. Any extended fingerings are noted in the parts. The bowings should be adhered to for maximum stylistic impact. The cello part between letters A and B should be divided according the abilities of the players in the section. A Violin III part is included, which is essentially a treble clef viola part; on those occasions where the viola part uses the C string, these notes are cued in the cello part. A piano part is included but is recommended for rehearsal purposes only.
