Here's a romp that will have your holiday concert audiences in stitches. Just imagine your principal, your musicians' favorite teachers, the mayor, or whomever, complete with chef's hat, banging on pots and pans and water glasses, and accompanied in the Christmas spirit by your orchestra. You supply the "props," add any winds and percussion you desire to your string orchestra, and you'll be cookin' on the front burner with this one!
In the full orchestra series, all material (except percussion) is covered in the string writing so the pieces can be performed in their entirety by a string orchestra, or by adding winds and percussion you can perform these works as a full orchestra.
