Pop Music for Spring for Middle School Choirs Monday, January 21, 2013
Stanton’s Sheet Music suggests that you make your students the stars this spring with some of these great popular music choices for middle school choirs. Whether you’re looking for current pop, an exciting choreography feature or a clever novelty number, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!
Life’s a Happy Song is the big production number from Walt Disney’s “The Muppets” and a sunny salute to Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and gang along with their biggest fan Gary! The lyrics say it all, “I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me.”
Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s unique Hawaiian-style Over the Rainbow has become a classic, and was performed in “Glee’s” first season finale. Now available is a new 2-part arrangement, which can be performed with piano or SoundTrax CD, featuring ukulele.
Performed in the Broadway musical “The Boy from Oz”, the Peter Allen and Carole Bayer Sager song Everything Old is New Again is perfect for young voices to perform. The ’20s-feel is full of bounce and energy reflecting on days of white suits, tap shoes and tails.
Rolling Stone named the Simon & Garfunkel hit Bridge Over Troubled Water from 1970 as one of the 500 greatest songs of all time, and now younger choirs can experience it in a well-crafted setting that preserves the essence of the song’s power and positive message.
