Various Arrangers : Show Tunes

There's nothing more fun to sing than a great show tune! An inspired a cappella treatment of the "Fats" Waller classic "Ain't Misbehavin'". Many fun options in the center section - "Rudy Vallee" solo, tap solo, etc. Totally unique! A classic Kirby Shaw setting of a Gershwin ballad " Love Is Here To Stay" is a delight. Here's a stunningly beautiful arrangement of the classic Broadway ballad "On A Clear Day". Steve Zegree's a cappella jazz voicings are breathtaking! Recorded by many artists including Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darrin, "Once Upon A Time" was featured in the Broadway production of All American. Beautiful harmonies and a lyrical melody combine to make this special.

Songlist: Ain't Misbehavin', On A Clear Day, Once Upon a Time

Various Arrangers : Women's Broadway

Beautiful harmonies and a lyrical melody combine to make "Once Upon A Time" a true classic. Recorded by many artists including Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darrin, the song was featured in the Broadway production of All American. The touching standard " Till There Was You", from The Music Man, in a beautiful a cappella setting by Kirby Shaw with jazz harmonies that will enchant both your singers and your audience. "If Ever I Would Leave You " is one of the top Broadway love ballads of all time, and this arrangement is a natural for a cappella women. Fantastic lyrics offer unique opportunities for lyric expression. The new setting of "Memory" from the pen of former King's Singers Philip Lawson has sensitive harmony and thoughtful voice-leading making this Broadway chestnut a winner!
