Blue Jupiter : Twisted Broadwaynew

Review: 2017 release. Blue Jupiter, a New York City-based contemporary a cappella group, announces the release of Twisted Broadway Volume 1 (An A Cappella Album). Twisted Broadway delivers classic Broadway show tunes, but each has been twisted, boldly re-imagined in Blue Jupiter's high energy a cappella style. Listeners will immediately recognize the hits from classic shows like Wicked, Pippin, Porgy and Bess, The Sound of Music, Chicago, The Wizard of Oz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and more. But they've never heard them like this before. Where groups like Post Modern Jukebox, deliver modern songs in old fashioned styles, Blue Jupiter prefers time travel in the opposite direction. Twisted Broadway features classic Broadway songs with a wickedly modern, contemporary a cappella sound.

Songlist: I Got the Sun in the Mornin', Magic to Do, My Favorite Things, Over the Rainbow, Summertime, Defying Gravity, Close Every Door, All That Jazz, Whatever Lola Wants, Put on a Happy Face, Let It Go, Over the Rainbow (Reprise)

King's Singers : Christmas Withnew

Review: Christmas with The King's Singers New music, old music, music from the Renaissance and Baroque, spirituals, folksongs, jazz and pop... The Beatles, David Bowie, swing, classical avantgarde, waltzes by Strauss, and musical theatre songs. Which genre of music are the King's Singers actually yet to interpret? Which style have they not yet captured within their unique global reach and within their transparent and intimate six-voiced sound world? One thing is for sure - when the King's Singers came together at the end of the 1960s in Cambridge, no one would have believed the success story that lay ahead of them. Some musical experts were scathing: a male-only vocal sextet was most likely to be found in the pop sector. But trained voices are surely better suited to a professional career either in the opera world or in mixed professional choirs. After all, the founding members came from the famous King's College Choir - one of the oldest surviving vocal institutions with nearly 500 years of history to it's name. It is with this tradition behind them that the King's Singers display the typical British musical virtues in which seriousness and humour, self-discipline, and a dash of satire all mix together so wonderfully. This is especially evident in their Christmas repertoire. Christmas carols are a special national treasure for Brits and are therefore the focus of festivities. The six voices' festive destinations also include the continent, such as Spain and Germany. "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen" by the German early Baroque master composer Michael Praetorius has become a Christmas standard. The world famous carol "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht" ("Silent Night") comes from the German-speaking world too, written for Christmas Eve in a village near Salzburg in 1818. The simple, classical melody radiates a little of the spirit of Mozart, who was born in Salzburg. What a pity there is no musical contribution to these Christmas festivities from Mozart, the King's Singers may have thought! Perhaps that's how they came up with the idea for an amusing and cheeky Christmas medley of melodies from the great classical composer, reinforced by the harpsichord playing of English conductor Richard Hickox and the singing of guest star Kiri Te Kanawa. © Oliver Buslau, 2017 Translation: texthouse

Songlist: Es Ist Ein Ros Entsprungen, Here We Come a Wassailing, It Came Upon the Midnight Clear, The Little Drummer Boy, I Wonder As I Wander, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Ding Dong! Merrily on High, Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht, O Little Town of Bethlehem, A Little Christmas Music (Medley Ë la Mozart), The Coventry Carol, The Boar's Head Carol, Gaudete, Joy to the World, Riu Riu Chiu, El Nino Querido, Nit de Vetlla, Deck the Hall, He Wexford Carol, The Gift, Patapan and Farandole

Review: The group competed in and won the fourth season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2013 and have gone on the great success with a steady touring schedule and an ever-growing fan base.

Tenor is sung by Rob Lundquist, baritone harmony by Adam Chance, and Tim Foust sings bass with vocal percussion provided by beatboxer Adam Rupp. Although Brown is Home Free's primary soloist, all of the other members occasionally sing solos as well. This is a top-notch recording that shows their tight harmonies and impressive arrangements.

Cliff Duren and David Wise : Spotlight A Cappellanew

Review: Hearing just one gifted voice sing an inspired piece of music can be a glorious, moving experience. Hearing it accompanied by musical instruments played by skillful musicians can be even more exciting. But...put together a group of exceptional Human Voices, joined in perfect harmony, skillfully arranged and executed, and a cappella music can take us to even greater heights of musical expression, soul-stirring emotion, and musical appreciation!

The music in this book acts as a SPOTLIGHT illuminating the brilliance and exceptional qualities of the Human Voice, made even more brilliant and exceptional by virtue of the fact that these songs magnify and glorify God. SPOTLIGHT features a group of voices weaving a tapestry of sound and movement, textures and lyrics...spotlighting the Human Voice, yes, but even more significantly, spotlighting the One Who created those voices and gave us the gift of all music!

Arranged by gifted arrangers Cliff Duren and David Wise (both of whom have their own special love of a cappella music!), SPOTLIGHT is both balanced and diverse in its content, including Hymns, Worship Songs, CCM Songs, Christmas and Patriotic Songs, being done in traditional a cappella styles and in the fresh, contemporary style of groups like Pentatonix.

Songlist: 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord), The Solid Rock, Hosanna with Hosanna (Praise Is Rising), How Deep the Father's Love for Us, God Is on the Move, Near the Cross, Christmas Medley , The Star-Spangled Banner

Stephen Sieck : Teaching with Respect: Inclusive Pedagogy for Choral Directorsnew

Review: This is a book for choral directors who find themselves in conversations they might not feel ready to have. Teaching with Respect prompts us to ask deeper questions about the language we use, about systems of power, about our heritage and inheritance. When we examine our teaching, we may find that, while we do not intentionally act with racism, sexism, or bigotry, we may be complicit in adopting systems and language that marginalize and discriminate. But since we want to be the kind of directors that foster artistic communities built on respect, we must be willing to ask such questions. And the burden cannot be on our singers who are being marginalized to teach us a more respectful path; it is on us to learn how it is that we are marginalizing. In this book we look closely at our teaching strategies. How does our repertoire and instruction intersect with our singers' identities, specifically their learning abilities, gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, and race? How do we engage with our audience? The book suggests an ethical approach to teaching choral music that is centered on respecting the singers in front of us. Readers will discover ways to maintain and elevate their artistic standards of excellence while also expanding their mindset.

Winner of Best Original Song at the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, and the Critic's Choice Movie Awards, this melancholy yet hopeful ballad features a haunting tune and a distinctive piano accompaniment that are instantly recognizable and extremely well suited for choral groups. Here's the optimistic opening number "Another Day of Sun". Who can forget those boisterous singing and dancing motorists on L.A.'s jammed 110 freeway at the start of the 2016 box office smash? This dynamic arrangement captures the excitement of the score with rhythmic drive, varied choral textures, and a rousing accompaniment. A perfect opener or closer, and a golden opportunity for choreography! "Someone in the Crowd" - The cast of gets all dolled up and heads to a lavish Hollywood Hills party during this big production number from the hugely successful motion picture. The lively tempo, jazzy feel, and cheeky lyrics are fantastically fun and fuel the fire to become (or find) that someone special amongst a crowd of hopefuls. Great for all choirs, and especially girls' groups! The stunning song "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" was an emotional showcase for actress Emma Stone in her award-winning performance as Mia in the 2016 blockbuster La La Land. Nominated for Best Original Song at the 89th Academy Awards, the poignant piece tells the story of one woman's life and acknowledges the dreamer in all of us. A beautiful choral setting of a very special song.

Songlist: Another Day of Sun, City of Stars, Someone in the Crowd, Audition (The Fools Who Dream)

Melissa Mills : Working with Young Singersnew

Review: This important resource is the culmination of a lifelong dream of author Melissa M. Mills to share the wisdom of many of the most influential community children's choir directors in North America, especially those responsible for pioneering and shaping this wonderful art form. Across two volumes, Mills collects and organizes interviews with 23 expert conductors. Through their conversations, Mills gleans wisdom about their training, teaching philosophy, motivations, and practice, and provides a special focus from each conductor on topics ranging from assigning vocal parts and teaching healthy tone production to planning rehearsals and developing independent musicians. Teachers of young singers will find a broad and deep exploration of the issues that conductors must consider, leading to more purposeful instruction and increased effectiveness in the choral setting. The philosophies and principles discussed in these books offer insights for teachers of the youngest singers through teenagers, in all choral settings (children's choirs, church choirs, and elementary, middle, and high school choirs). The growing interest in both community children's choirs and choral conducting philosophy makes Working with Young Singers a timely and invaluable resource for all choral music educators.
