Pop Music for Spring 2015 for Men’s & Women’s Choirs 29 January, 2015

by Jen Sper & Rachel Steele, School Choral Specialists

If you’re planning a concert of popular music with your choir this spring, we’ve got some great recommendations for you! Lighter repertoire is a fun option for end-of-year concerts, but don’t forget to find some good musical challenges for your students as well – you want to showcase all the progress they’ve made throughout the school year!

Shake It Off arr. Roger Emerson
Players gonna play, haters gonna hate, but I’m just gonna shake it off! Taylor Swift’s irresistible #1 hit from 2014 is pure pop delight!

With a Song in My Heart arr. Kirby Shaw
One of the greatest songs of all time, Rodgers & Hart’s classic romantic ballad will produce warm smiles all around as you luxuriate in the lush harmonies of this superb a cappella arrangement.

Gone, Gone, Gone arr. Andy Beck
American Idol winner Phillip Phillips topped the charts with this single from his debut album. Great voice-leading and appropriate ranges make it a perfect choice for developing men’s groups. And the sweet, heart-felt lyrics of this folk-pop love song will reveal the softer side of your guys!

Seize the Day arr. Kirby Shaw
Now in an exciting a cappella setting! This showstopper from the award-winning composer Alan Menken was featured in the Disney film and Broadway musical “Newsies.” Featuring a powerful “brotherhood” text, it begins with a compelling chorale-like opening and then explodes into rhythm that encourages us all to “seize the day!”

NEW in Contemporary A Cappella 20 January, 2015

Contemporary a cappella music gets more and more popular every year! With high-profile features like “The Sing-Off” and “Pitch Perfect,” many high schools and colleges are getting in on the action as well! Here are a few of Stanton’s new favorites for contemporary a cappella ensembles:

fun. (Medley from The Sing-Off) arr. Deke Sharon
America’s favorite a cappella show returned for another smash mini-season in 2013 with show-stoppers like this medley from super group fun. If you are up for no lip-synching, back-up bands or safety net, this chart is for you! Includes: Carry On, Some Nights, We Are Young.

I Need Your Love arr. Ben Bram
DJ Calvin Harris collaborated with English performer Ellie Goulding on this top-forty hit. Ben Bram’s contemporary treatment is sure to be a hit with your a cappella group!

Groovin’ arr. Kirby Shaw
The #1 hit from 1967 by the Young Rascals in a smooth vocals-only setting perfectly captures the relaxed slow groove of the song with an easy vocal accompaniment and an irresistible solo. Also available TTBB and SSAA.

I’ve Had the Time of My Life arr. Deke Sharon
Featured on NBC’s The Sing-Off, this #1 hit by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes from the 1987 film “Dirty Dancing” features two soloists with a rich vocal accompaniment. Opening simply, it builds consistently through two key changes to an electrifying final cadence.

Skyfall arr. J.A.C. Redford
The hit single by Adele from the motion picture “Skyfall” has been creatively arranged by J.A.C Redford, the orchestrator of the film. Using vocal percussion and divisi vocal parts, J.A.C. has created a setting that is perfect for jazz and show choirs as well as concert choirs.

If I Die Young arr. Ben Bram
This poignant story about a young life lost too early touched listeners around the world when released by The Band Perry. Ben’s contemporary a cappella setting is an appropriate choice for more reflective concert occasions. Also available SSAA.

Royals arr. Deke Sharon
This 2013 song by Lorde topped the Hot 100, AC and Rock charts and won the Grammy for song of the year and best pop performance. This a cappella setting will be a hit with pop, jazz and a cappella groups in high school, college and beyond! Also available SSAA.

Turn on the Radio arr. Bryan Sharpe
Contemporary a cappella groups will enjoy this Reba McEntire top hit as they sing about a relationship gone bad. “So listen Romeo, when you’re feelin’ kinda lonely, let me tell you where to go: turn on the radio!”

Little Lion Man arr. Deke Sharon
The debut single from 2009 by Mumford & Sons from their debut album “Sigh No More” packs a folk rock punch in this arrangement for unaccompanied male voices.

The Circle Game arr. Kate MacColl
Originally created for Vancouver’s ensemble Elektra, this concert arrangement features a soloist as it weaves the melody through every section in the ensemble. Multiple key changes add to the musicality of this delightful setting of a Joni Mitchell favorite.

It’s time for you to shine! The fresh sounds of Owl City continue to delight fans across the globe. Young singers will love recreating the music with this accessible arrangement!

Wooly Bully arr. Jay Althouse
Sam the Sham and The Pharoahs became a worldwide sensation with this novelty hit based on a standard blues progression. Easy-to-sing harmonies and fun lyrics will stick with you long after the concert has ended. As for the strange title: according to Sam, “The name of my cat was Wooly Bully, so I started from there.”

Can’t Buy Me Love arr. Roger Emerson
Celebrate 50 years of the Beatles with this energetic song from 1964! Set in a rock style swing, the voices trade off, and the blues chord progression makes it easy to add guitar! A great showcase for younger and developing choirs!

Behind the Scenes: It’s That Time of Year… 04 December, 2014

by Ken Tilger, Band Education Specialist –

The holidays are already upon us. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Christmas and Hanukkah are just around the corner. For the Stanton’s staff it means that convention season is also here! This winter we will be exhibiting (and selling!) music at music educators’ professional conferences in New York (NYSSMA), Michigan (MMC), Ohio (OMEA), Kentucky (KMEA), and, for the first time, The Midwest Clinic. These conferences are a great opportunity to talk shop directly with our expert staff, meet customers face-to-face that we may recognize by name (and voice!), and besides, it gets us out of the store! Ever wonder how our 6-8 booths of music get to your state conference? Check out the slideshow below to see how we pull, pack, and transport thousands of sheet music titles and accessory items, and if we’re exhibiting at your conference be sure to stop by the Stanton’s booth (under the big blue balloon) and say “hello”!
