Sleigh Ride for String Quartet
Surprisingly, Leroy Anderson first had the idea for Sleigh Ride during a heat wave in 1946 before finishing it two years later. Since then, the upbeat piece has become a worldwide sensation, so come on! It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you (and you and you and you)!
