What can we say about "Golden Wedding" other than it is a stunning concert vehicle to show off the talents of your Clarinetist, lead trumpet and drummer. It is a classic chart from the Woody Herman band, and in many ways is Herman's answer to "Sing Sing Sing." The music was written in 1887 by Gabriel Marie, originally entitled "La Cinquantaine," and arranged by James Noble in 1940 and re-used for the 1942 Andrews Sisters film "What's Cookin'." The Clarinet part is written to reach A6, but we've added a couple of extra measures at the end in case your player wishes to aim for C7 and bring the house down. Saxes are scored for CATTB.
