Summer is just around the corner, and along with family vacations, cookouts, and a more relaxed pace comes the summer concert season. Stanton’s Sheet Music is excited to have a wide variety of NEW suggestions for community bands beginning with pops arrangements that will add that touch of familiarity to your program!
Crooner’s Serenade – A medley of pops standards as performed by singing sensation Michael Buble: Moondance, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, and Save the Last Dance for Me.
Haven’t Met You Yet – Soaring lines and lush brass scoring highlight this original hit from Crazy Love, Michael Buble’s fourth album.
Indiana – A classic, big band-style arrangement of this standard, a la the Glenn Miller Band, that is perfect for your summer concerts.
A Man and His Soul – Pay tribute to legendary musician Ray Charles with this medley featuring the up-tempo classic What’d I Say, the beautiful and lush Ruby, and the gospel infused I Got a Woman.
Sinatra – With his charismatic style and polished interpretations, Frank Sinatra put his unique stamp on a number of familiar standards. Stephen Bulla’s swinging medley features several of his best-known hits: Come Fly with Me, Witchcraft, That’s Life, and Fly Me to the Moon.
Stardust – Feature a guest artist or your best alto sax or trumpet soloist on this beautiful Hoagy Carmichael ballad.
Stevie Wonder in Concert – The music of Stevie Wonder is timeless and has cross-generational appeal. Four of his biggest hits are highlighted in this medley: Sir Duke, You Are the Sunshine of My Life, I Wish, and Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
Volare – Recorded by many top artists, Dean Martin’s version probably being the best-known, this unexpected arrangement is a nice change-of-pace perfect for a summer concert.
