choral music about friendship

My non-auditioned SATB community chorus will be doing a combined concert in the spring of 2015 with another nearby similar chorus. I want to end the concert with a couple of lighter pieces with the theme of friendship. I'm thinking something from Broadway or pop music would be good. A couple of ideas I have: Friendship from Anything Goes, Together Wherever We Go from Gypsy, For Good from Wicked, Our Time from Merrily We Roll Along. Any other ideas? We will have piano and an orchestra available; we are doing Cherubini Requiem in the first half.

We once used a quartet (Sop, Tenor, Barotone, Bass) in a concert to sing, from Gilbert and Sullivan's 'Iolanthe' - and you could well use larger forces - "Though p'rhaps I may incur your blame... in firendship's name." If you have a basso profundo it would be a bonus!

You might want to consider a gentle ending piece, rather than an "up" one - try "Here's to Song" by Allister MacGillivray, arr Lydia Adams - available from Leslie Music. There are lots of YouTube examples...

How about "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story, or "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers?  If you want something a bit more contemporary, you could try "Count on Me" by Bruno Mars.
