On Saturday, August 25, Stanton’s Sheet Music hosted our 19th 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: Festival Cantate, by Victor C. Johnson
For high school choirs: Zigeunerleben, by Robert Schumann
For college choirs: Listen to the Lambs, arr. Howard Helvey
For community choirs: Light of a Clear Blue Morning, arr. Craig Hella Johnson
For Christmas concerts: As Lately We Watched, arr. Ian R. Charter
For women’s choirs: I Lift My Eyes, by Bob Chilcott
For men’s choirs: Simple Gifts, arr. Stephen Caracciolo
You can still receive the full clinic packet for the registration fee of $15 (while supplies last). This year’s packet includes over 30 octavos, and contains an incredible amount of repertoire variety! Contact us if you are interested! Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
