Big Time


Made famous by Linda Eder, this 1994 Frank Wildhorn & Jack Murphy collaboration tells the story of what a girl has to do to make it to the top in showbusiness. From the opening Sing Sing Sing style drum solo this fast, punchy and very powerful chart will just knock your socks off, and your vocalist will need to be equally as dynamic to do it justice. The reeds are scored CATTB, though we have included an extra Alto part - a transposition of Tenor 1 - which allows your section to be CAATB, giving you flexibility as to who plays the Clarinet line. The vocal Key is E minor, modulating to F minor for the last chorus, and the vocal range extends one and a half octaves, from A below middle C up to Eb. The lead trumpet needs to hit high F# too.
