“Floating Snowflakes for Beginning String Orchestra” is a wonderful little Christmas piece which begins with an original melody written by Garth Williams. A combination of eighths,quarter, and half notes create a warm, singing melody which begins the piece. Once this melody has been established, the composer has added “The First Nowell” to happily finish the entire piece. Within the makeup of the piece, each section gets the opportunity to present the melody and then supports other sections who also are given the melody in turn. A great Christmas piece for young orchestra.
