There are many, many band collections in print that allow the director to use "mix and match" instrumentation to fit a particular ensemble. However, the existing publications are at the Grade 1 or 2 levels, so they do not address the needs of students from small high schools (or from fledgling programs) where there might only be ten to fifteen band members, but each one of them is capable of playing Grade 3-4 music. "Concert Ensembles for Everyone" is specifically designed to fill this need. In "Concert Ensembles," Peter Blair uses a unique "overlapping" method of arranging, so all the necessary parts can be covered by a wide variety of possible ensemble instrumentations. There are four overlapping woodwind parts, four overlapping brass parts, a bass part that may be played by any instrument that reads (or sounds) in the bass clef, and percussion.
