Comment: Re: Latin opener for Advanced Men's Chorus

Comment: Re: Seeking Repertoire and Ideas for a program called "A Springtime Journey"
Hi Kathleen! If you are up for a challenge with your group, I would recommend the Glink "Traveling Song".  It can be done in Russian (if you choose the Russian, go to musicarussica.com and get the diction CD; well worth the work!) or in English.  The song tells the story of the excitement surr...
