On Saturday, August 28, Stanton’s Sheet Music hosted our 17th annual Excellence in Choral Literature Clinic. Our attendees gathered in the James E. Strouse Workshop Hall with our clinician Jim Gallagher and some of our choral staff (including our wonderful accompanist, Joyce Stonebraker) and had a fantastic morning reading through a wide variety of high-quality music for choirs at all levels of difficulty. We spent a little bit of time socializing and catching up with old friends, and A LOT of time discovering beautiful new music!
Did you miss out on this year’s Clinic? Never fear! Here are just a few of our favorite pieces that were featured:
For middle school choirs: Kyrie Eleison, by J.S. Bach/arr. Tim Sharp
For high school choirs: Niska Banja, arr. Nick Page
For college choirs: The Most Living Moment, by David N. Childs
For community choirs: My Flight for Heaven, by Blake Henson
For Christmas concerts: Personent Hodie, arr. Philip Kern
