Hello! I hope there are some choral geniuses out there who can help me:
What are your favorite a cappella arrangements of popular music? How about your favorite body percussion/song combinations? I teach an after school "a cappella" choir for upper elementary and middle school - we do mostly unaccompanied music and we are always looking for fun ways to arrange pop tunes in a way that is ostinato based so its accessible and fun for the kids to learn. I like to poach ideas from already arranged a cappella tunes and last year I had a lot of success singing Bring me Little Water Sylvie in unison with body percussion. 2 to 3 parts are ideal, four parts if it is simple. Any and all ideas are welcome!

The Colburn Children’s Choir’s third Classical Movements tour brought the choir to Portugal and Spain where they enjoyed a festival performance in Lisbon, three collaborative concerts with local choirs in Spain, and a concert in Iglesia de la Magdalena in the historic UNSECO World Heritage center of Cordoba. In addition to experiencing Portugal’s domination of the European Championship on the night of their concert in Lisbon, the highlights of the tour were the collaborative workshops and concerts with the three local choirs in Spain, including extensive press coverage of the collaboration with Coro Meridianos, an el Sistema-like choir in Seville.
