Hi, I am new here. I am working with a special choir where the members are children/high schoolers with a variety of disorders, mostly emotional and behavioral. I was able to do Siahamba (which is simple) with some effort in 3 voices [they eventually got it], and I am also doing Viva la Vida by Coldplay (they absolutely love it as it is simple and uplifting).
I am looking for more repertoire. Mostly 1-2 parts (3 parts only if really easy).
- It needs to be fun as they get bored and will simply walk out get agitated (yeah!)
- It can be a pop/rock song (but I am also looking for alternatives)
- No one reads music
- It can't be complicated as they will get frustrated
- I have a pianist accompaning (some simple a capella sugestions are welcome though)
Children are ages 8-16. I have more girls and young boys (singing alto and soprano) and a couple of basses + a few baritones.
Sorry for all the 'parameters'.
Your suggestions are very welcomed and am eager to hear/try them!
