Pop Music for Spring 2014 for Middle School Choirs Tuesday, January 21, 2014
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 classic jazz standard, we’ll help you find the perfect choice for your ensemble!
Released as the lead single from Katy Perry’s “Prism,” Roar quickly became Katy’s eighth number one Billboard hit. It’s a super-charged anthem of empowerment, perfect for any group!
Love Will Keep Us Together was one of the top hits of the 1970s for The Captain & Tennille. The triadic harmonies and pop groove make this tune absolutely adorable and perfect for younger choirs!
On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe is one of the great, swingin’ “train songs” of the 1940s. Jay Althouse’s arrangement features a tight, rhythmic “chug-a, chug-a, oo-woo” section straight from the lyricist Johnny Mercer’s own hit recording with The Pied Pipers.
Was it red? No no no. Was it brown? No no no. The famous Ella Fitzgerald rendition of the classic nursery song A-Tisket A-Tasket is a sassy, jazzy twist on the familiar lyrics. A great Discovery Series choice for developing jazz style in your younger choirs!
