Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

  1. Piccolo, flute [to low B], clarinet, alto saxophone
  2. Oboe, English horn
  3. Flute [to low B], E-flat clarinet, clarinet, bass clarinet


  1. Updated per information received from Craig Dalton

  2. Mike Serban says:

    I’m currently in rehearsals for a production of this show, and the reed books above are accurate, but Reed 1 also has alto saxophone in it, and Reed 3 has Eb clarinet in it.

    This is the 2009/10 Tour orchestration, as listed on MTI’s website(and in the books).

  3. Mike Serban says:

    After looking through my book again, Reed 3 also requires a low B foot on flute (only used for a number or two in Act 2).

  4. David Benedict says:

    Reed 1 flute part has a single low B.
    The flute doubles the vocal line here so the low B is quite important.
