On Saturday, August 27, Stanton’s Sheet Music hosted our 18th 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: Sing Now with Joy, by Henry Purcell/arr. Audrey Snyder
For high school choirs: The Gospel Train, arr. Jack Halloran
For college choirs: There Will Be Rest, by Frank Ticheli
For community choirs: Buffalo Gals, arr. John Alexander & Ryan McSweeney
For Christmas concerts: Midnight Clear, by Matthew D. Nielsen
For women’s choirs: My True Love Has My Heart, by Laura Farnell
For men’s choirs: I Am That Man, by Mark Hayes
