Stanton’s Sheet Music suggests that you make your students the stars this spring with some of these great popular music choices for high school mixed choirs. Whether you’re looking for current pop, an a cappella feature or an inspirational ballad, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!
The British boy band One Direction is capturing the hearts of young fans all over the world! The catchy single What Makes You Beautiful from their “Up All Night” album is fun and upbeat, ideal for young choirs in this accessible setting.
The 2011 Broadway revival of “Godspell” brought new interest to the upbeat pop anthem Beautiful City. It speaks directly to the human spirit and our ultimate power to build a truly “civilized” community – a wonderful message for young adults.
Fresh from the top ten of both the Billboard Hot 100 and Pop charts, the Owl City/Carly Rae Jepsen Platinum-certified hit Good Time is great for choreography. “We don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time!”
Powerful vocal harmonies and an awesome drum track will make your audience want to stand up and cheer to Some Nights from the indie/pop group fun. It soared up the Hot 100, Rock and Adult charts, and it will electrify your audience!
The expressive ballad When I Fall in Love has been expertly arranged for a cappella mixed voices by Kirby Shaw. A classic song + a classic setting = a memorable performance experience for all.
