Sandra Milliken recordings? Videos? Other humorous/novelty songs?
Date: June 30, 2014
This spring, we performed Milliken's Flamenco Flamingos with riser choreography, plastic flamingos, flamingo hats for director, pianist, and percussionist. One of our singers is an amazing artist and sculptor. She created a 5-foot tall papier-mache flamingo (complete with guitar and false eyelashes) which we auctioned off for several hundred dollars (travel fundraising). The audience and the singers had a blast with this tune.
We're now looking for a humorous/novelty piece or two for next season. Has your choir/audience enjoyed Milliken's other pieces -- Squirrel, Sudoku, Elbows, Ornamental Cat, et al.? I could only find videos of Missa Piccola online.
If you have a suggestion for other humorous songs for SSA/SSAA choir, please do let me know. (The last choralnet postings on this topic are from back in 2009...)
