Santa Makes the “Rounds”! Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Feature your elementary choir this winter with one of these great octavos, as featured on Stanton’s Elementary General Music Clinic with Greg Gilpin:

First Flakes by Amy F. Bernon
Making ample use of wordplay, contrasts between staccato and legato sounds, and engaging syncopation, Amy Bernon illustrates a child’s sense of anticipation and wonder at the first snowfall of the year. With options for two-part singing, this selection offers an upbeat, twirling, swirling winter experience for your young singers.

I See a Star by Greg Gilpin
Simply charming for young and developing choirs, this touching piece offers a wish for the world to find the hope, peace, and love that it needs. With memorable melodies and a bridge featuring hints of “star light, star bright, first star I see tonight,” it is usable throughout the year as a song of peace and will make an especially effective addition to Christmas, winter, and holiday concerts.

Santa Makes the “Rounds” arr. Janet Gardner
This arrangement is delightful! Famous rounds have new lyrics that are crafted perfectly for the holidays. With this piece, you ll be able to teach the rounds kids need to know as well as present them in a new way for a great holiday performance.

Super Santa! by Andy Beck
Listen up, superheroes and secret agents! There’s a new guy in town and he’s on a mission to deliver Christmas with unmistakable ’60s panache. “Not a bird, not a plane, not a speeding turbo train…it’s Super Santa Claus!…Whoosh! Pow!” Groovy, baby.
