Blue Skies

Blue Skies, arranged for Violin, Viola and Cello. Advanced Intermediate due to double stops in Cello and Violin part, and use of swung rhythm.
Written in 1926 as a last minute addition to the Rodgers and Hart musical, Betsy, the audience on opening night demanded 24 encores of this piece from Belle Baker. It has since been recorded by many artists, including Benny Goodman, Bing Crosby, Count Basie, Willie Nelson, Frank Sinatra, amongst many others.

This arrangement would work wonderfully for a string trio performing at weddings.
