A modern holiday classic, “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” has been a winter concert staple for years. With choral arrangements for SATB, 3-part mixed, 2-part, and TBB, almost any ensemble can bring the Grinch’s miserly humbug to the stage!

New this year for the accomplished a cappella ensemble:

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch arr. Jamey Ray, SATB a cappella
Check out this electrifying arrangement about everyone’s favorite holiday villain as performed by a cappella group and YouTube sensation Voctave. A bass soloist (or a few guys) takes center stage, singing over a smooth choral background of jazzy chords and riffs. Clever rhythmic touches and fun articulations add plenty of vocal interest in all voice parts. Terrific!

Check out Voctave’s exciting performance below, contact us for more novelty holiday suggestions, and shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
