Repertoire for World Hunger concert
Date: August 24, 2013
In January I am conducting a concert with the local symphony to raise money to help alleviate world hunger. The concert will be in a symphonic Pops genre, with a mass choir of 80 or more singers on the junior college/high school level. Much of the concert will be orchestral, so as not to burden participating choirs too much from their own preparations for concerts, contests, etc.
Not all of the music must deal with the theme - I'm planning on a medley from the Sound of Music as well as the Battle Hymn - but I'm looking for a good closer piece that is a "one world," "let's help one another," or similar theme. It needs to have orchestral accompaniment and be a crown pleaser. Currently I'm thinking of "Let There Be Peace on Earth," but maybe you all have another suggestion?
