Funny you should mention it... I was recently the arranger for one that appeared on YouTube, and I might be interested in arranging music for another group project. (I performed the symphonic suite in 2016, with music from A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, and have the score and parts.)
This is what I arranged (and played in):
This is the performance I was involved in, and which I have the score for:
I'd be able to arrange any theme heard in that symphonic suite without a ton of trouble. One warning: most of the themes in the Star Wars movies contain a lot of accidentals, so be prepared for that!
That's great! I really like the imperial march (Darth Vader's theme), but it doesn't matter to me. My family are huge Star Wars fans, and I love it all. I recently bought a Star Wars book and had been playing out of it, and I thought it would be a fun group project. I also thought it would be fun to dress up like some of the characters.
I'd be on board with something
a little different...
a parody in a galaxy
far, far away.
You obviously did a lot of hard work, Andrew (it shows),
but I could only participate in a more simplified project -
like if Fiddlerman made a medley of "Tune a Week #6"!
I would definitely dress the part!
Oh cool! I have never seen any Star Wars movies, (yes I know it might sound a little weird...) but I want that kind of bow too!! I’m already planning how to add some led-lights to my bow for this project...😂😂
Just for the record, the group project I arranged music for had people who were almost complete beginners in it. I arranged it with three violin parts, two viola parts, and two cello parts. The first violin, first viola, and first cello parts were all playable at lower intermediate level (some 3rd position and moderate use of accidentals); the second violin part was playable at upper beginner level (1st position, simplified rhythms, occasional accidentals); the third violin, second viola, and second cello parts were playable by almost anyone who had played for longer than a month or two (1st position, no accidentals, and no fast notes).
That said, I'm already committed to arranging a Legend of Zelda medley for a similar group project in the near future, and I don't have a ton of free time on my hands for the next month or so.
