Short piece(s) for modest community chorus and orchestra
Date: February 6, 2016
I'm a visitor here, from orchestra land, and would greatly appreciate your guidance. I'm looking for a piece (or two), 10-20 minutes, for SATB chorus and orchestra. The chorus numbers about 50, an enthusiastic community chorus of quite modest ability. They will probably be happiest in English, and we're looking for something fun and "singable." While this is not for a Pops concert, it would be just fine (maybe even desirable) if it tilted a little in the pops direction. "Frostiana" would probably be about the right level of difficulty (but the director didn't warm to it).
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you can offer.
