Patriotic songs for small children's choir
Date: November 5, 2012
I am looking for patriotic arrangements and ideas for a small, newly formed singing group. This is for a private school of music where I teach musicianship and singing (choir) to kids ages 5 to 9 in a group setting. It is a small group of about 9 students currently. We are asked to perform patriotic music for community events from time to time, and I am really struggling with repertoire ideas accessable to this age group. Unison is probably best at this point, optional 2 part music might work.
We have sung "America" (My country 'tis of thee...), "America the Beautiful" and "You're a Grand Old Flag"(with sign language) at two other events with the Mayor this year. We have been asked to sing in January at another mayoral event and I'd like to do different music. I suppose music with an Americana theme would work, too. I would appreciate suggestions.
