Christmas In July 2016

July 27, 2016 -

Tired of the heat? Get your sleigh bells, scarf and cool off with my annual Christmas in July special. You will hear a short cantata by JS Bach, plus new music for the season and of course a chestnut or two. Come on in!

What are some of your favorite unison/two-part choral pieces? I'm trying to gather ideas for my 6th grade choir for this coming school year. Any help/suggestions would greatly be appreciated! Thanks! :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Ben WinnMy fifth graders performed "Seasons: A Choral Song Cycle" by Andy Beck (Alfred) this past year and they did an amazing job on the two-part arrangement. Five movements that can be performed together or separately (The movements are also sold together or separately). It was very accessible and challenging to them.
