This pep band arrangement would be a favorite to all, especially the drumline as it features a nice beat to support the overworld theme played by the rest of the band. Each instrument will be able to play a little bit of the theme as they take turns playing the main melody. With the piece in the key of B flat, and being in cut time, this piece should be fairly easy to play. The piece will get everyone’s heads bouncing and those in the stands would bounce along to this popular theme heard all over the world.
This clarinet version of the Super Mario Bros. Overworld Theme was actually done back in 2007, but was written in a hard-to-read way, and in the key of C. When i re-visited this arrangement for Clarinet (after completing the pep band version) I transposed the key to B-flat, and made the rhythm easier to read and in cut-time. This piece is written for 2 clarinets, and a bass clarinet.
