Pop Music for Spring for Middle School Choirs Friday, February 10, 2012
Stanton’s Sheet Music suggests that you send your students into summer with some of these great popular music choices for middle school choirs. Whether you’re looking for current pop, a jazz favorite or a sophisticated medley, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!
Celebrate the 100th anniversary of “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” with Irving Berlin: From Rags to Ritz, a medley of Berlin’s greatest hits arranged for choir, band and strings! Includes: “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “Blue Skies,” “Play a Simple Melody” and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.”
Chubby Checker’s dance craze hit Let’s Twist Again is now a fun 2-part choral! “We’re gonna do the twist and it goes like this…” Irresistible fun for show and concert!
Boogie down with the 1979 hit Old Time Rock & Roll in this smokin’ arrangement! One of the most popular singles of all time, it was also a classic scene in the 1983 film “Risky Business.”
From the opening strains, everyone will recognize the quicky, jazzy theme of The Pink Panther by Henry Mancini! Younger singers will beg to sing this well-crafted arrangement with “scat” lyrics!
