Lakeland, Florida (August 17, 2021) – Excelcia Music Publishing announces the holiday release of Adaptable Trios for Christmas, a timely expansion of its flexible instrumentation series, Adaptable Ensemble Series. The new flexible Christmas collection contains 27 new trio arrangements written at accessible 1.5 to 3 grade levels. Specifically designed for the needs of the modern music room, professional or at home families, Adaptable Trios for Christmas exponentially broadens holiday music options by providing genuine flexibility with winds, strings and percussion.

Designed to be used with any combination of wind instruments and/or percussion (in the Wind series) or string instruments (in the Strings series), Adaptable Ensemble Series — including Adaptable Quartets, Adaptable Trios and Adaptable Duets — has emerged as a leading resource in flexible instrumentation. Like all books in the Adaptable Ensemble Series, the line scoring arrangement in Adaptable Trios for Christmas not only facilitates the needs of the classroom, but also offers sound pedagogic progression from small chamber to full ensemble playing, making a class set a remarkably useful tool.

Adaptable Trios for Christmas is arranged by dedicated educators and composers Tyler Arcari and Matthew R. Putnam, along with percussion specialist Robert Clayson (in the percussion book) and Strings specialist Diana Traietta (in the string books). New flexible trio arrangements include Hark! The Herald, Angel’s Sing, Deck the Halls with Figgy Pudding, Auld Lang Syne, Away in a Manger, The Huron Carol, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from Op.71a The Nutcracker Suite, Greensleeves and many more.  Books are available for Flute, Oboe, B♭ Clarinet/Bass Clarinet/B♭ Trumpet/Baritone T.C., Alto Saxophone/Baritone Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Horn in F, Trombone/Euphonium/Bassoon, Tuba, Percussion, Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass instruments. 

Adaptable Trios for Christmas as well as Adaptable Duets, Adaptable Trios & Adaptable Quartets are available for $14.99 from music retailers everywhere and from the publisher.
