Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy
Jeff Funk’s choral adaptation of this selection from The Nutcracker Suite was a huge success in its original SATB setting. Now Jeff brings us both men’s (TTBB), women’s (SSAA) and 3-PartÂ editions that will provide wonderful lighthearted programming for your next holiday concert.
Russian DanceÂ Â
Sung entirely on “fa-la-la” and “plum,” this novelty piece successfully transforms Tchaikovsky’s orchestration into a light and lively a cappella choral, available in both SATB and SSAA. A jovial choice for holiday performances, Jeff Funk’s arrangement dances along from its recognizable opening flourish to the accelerating, jolly end. Guaranteed to make you smile!
Nutcracker MarchÂ Â
SATB choirs, accompanied only by an optional snare-drum, will love singing this clever a cappella arrangement from Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet. Easy to prepare with equal doses of unison singing, uncomplicated chords, “fa-la-la’s,” and “plums.” Treat your singers and audience to some “suite” holiday humor.
Waltz of the Flowers
Bring a touch of the Nutcracker to your next holiday concert with this classy bit of humor for SATB choir! Much of Tchaikovsky’s original material is used in this a cappella setting.
