  • February 18, 2009 MedleysAre Fun

    I liked the choice of music for each medley and the songs flowed nicely into one another. I would use this music for a small choir of teens or young adults. I found the size of the book a little harder to work with because there is more page turning...

    than in a bigger book with smaller print. Loose sheets is really the way to go for a choir so pages can be laid out.

  • May 23, 2002 Oshkosh Choraliers Concert 2002

    I belong to the Oshkosh Choraliers Community Choir in Oshkosh, WI. We are comprised of approximately 90 voices. Anyone who enjoys singing is welcome to join. No try outs. We hold an annual concert every first Saturday in May. This years concert title was "20th Century Celebration". We featured this...

    medley of great songs in our second half of the show complete with costumes to showcase the 10 decades, dancers and enough excitement to keep the adrenilin flowing for both the choir members and audience. The music selections from each decade captured the spirit of the nation for the time it was representing. It was a challenging piece to master but worth the effort. It is 55 minutes of non-stop pure entertainment sure to please any crowd with an appetite for good music.
