“`Hundreds of pages of orchestral arrangements created for and used by Judy Garland will be auctioned by Nate D Sanders Auctions February 27th. The collection includes arrangements of such Garland classics as  Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Judy at the Palace, I’m Always Chasing Rainbows, Over the Rainbow, and more.

“`According to notes and stamps on the music sheets, a bulk of the arrangements were used for the 1963-1964 television series The Judy Garland Show, as well as other performances, including her 1967 concert engagement at Broadway’s Palace Theatre.

“`The arrangements were discovered in a trunk left by the star at New York’s Plaza Hotel in 1967 following the Palace concerts. The trunk and its contents were ultimately given to Costas Omero, director and producer of a revue that premiered at the Plaza in 1971. This lot includes a letter of authenticity from Omero’s daughter.

“`Bidding for the arrangements is set to begin at $3,000.
