Enjoy “The Nutcracker” with your Choir!

Don’t let the school orchestra corner the market on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker SuiteJeff Funk offers these fun and challenging a cappella arrangements for your choirs:

Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy
Jeff Funk’s choral adaptation of this selection from The Nutcracker Suite was a huge success in its original SATB setting. Now Jeff brings us both men’s (TTBB), women’s (SSAA) and 3-Part editions that will provide wonderful lighthearted programming for your next holiday concert.

Russian Dance 
Sung entirely on “fa-la-la” and “plum,” this novelty piece successfully transforms Tchaikovsky’s orchestration into a light and lively a cappella choral, available in both SATB and SSAA. A jovial choice for holiday performances, Jeff Funk’s arrangement dances along from its recognizable opening flourish to the accelerating, jolly end. Guaranteed to make you smile!

Nutcracker March
SATB choirs, accompanied only by an optional snare-drum, will love singing this clever a cappella arrangement from Tchaikovsky’s famous ballet. Easy to prepare with equal doses of unison singing, uncomplicated chords, “fa-la-la’s,” and “plums.” Treat your singers and audience to some “suite” holiday humor.

Waltz of the Flowers
Bring a touch of the Nutcracker to your next holiday concert with this classy bit of humor for SATB choir! Much of Tchaikovsky’s original material is used in this a cappella setting.

Four Nutcracker Favorites
A “suite” SATB a cappella collection, including Nutcracker March, Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy, Russian Dance and Waltz of the Flowers.
