SSA with daytime theme

Looking for an upbeat, daytime themed piece for an SSA group of 16 high school girls. Any genre!

New Day -Audrey Snyder.  My girls loved singing it. :-)

Hi Alison
If you would consider "mouth music", I did a SSA version of the up-beat Folk fiddle tune by James Johnstone of Orkney, which has proved popular with the ladies of a choir I sing in.
The "words" are easy to remember  -  "dum-di-dum-di-dum" and they have memorised the music fairly easily too.
Go to my website http://www.ptsheetmusic.com/page14.html (Folk music arrangements)  and select The Deerness Jig.
Best wishes  -  Philip

My "Come I This Day To The Father" might suit if you're OK with a religious piece: http://notenova.com/catalog/work/come-i-this-day-to-the-father/

Stephen Paulus's Daybreak would be great!  SSA/piano.  Lively and exciting.

Will There Really Be A Morning? by Craig Jella Johnson is really gorgeous! It is not what you  would call "upbeat" but the piece is beautiful - lyrics and all - one of my favorites -  SA and SSA voicings.

Here's a great daytime piece, Tomorrow Shall be My Dancing Day, by John Rutter – one of his finest arrangements – sung here by 16 SSA girls! Yes, it's a carol, and yes it's no doubt about Christmas, but it may be understood on many levels. Above all it is sublimely uplifting– for singers and audience!
