Composition Spotlight: Teenage Romance

COMPOSITION SPOTLIGHT ~ by Jack Senzig
 
(Each week we look at one or two of the best choral works posted in the Composition Showcase here on ChoralNet.  This is where we store a treasure trove of works that your choirs will love to sing and your audiences will love to hear.)
 
Teenage Romance by Mike O’Mara for SAAT a cappella
(click here for PDF and here for AUDIO
 
Level: High School
Uses: End of the Year
Program Themes: High School Life
This Piece Would Program Well With: Corenr of the Sky from “Pippin” by Schwartz/Cacavas available from JWPepper and Sheet Music Plus
 
The end of the year is coming and with it Pops concerts, awards dinners and choir member talent shows.  Teenage Romance is a piece uniquely appropriate for these kinds of performances.  With text like “Why can’t hormones let us be?!?” I think you get the idea.  Listen and imagine the fun your singers and their families will have with this piece at your end of the year programs.  This is one of a set of songs called “Modern Madrigals.”
 
This piece is available through the Composition Showcase

Thank you very much for this honor, ChoralNet!

If any choir directors are interested in hearing actual teens singing the piece in a small-ensemble setting, they can check out a video from a performance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0wuOffN3ic
