Bring some fun to your holiday concerts with these great pop arrangements for choir – your audience will love it!
Santa, Bring My Baby Back (To Me) arr. Ryan O’Connell
Put some “Elvis” into your concert with this hit from 1957. Complete with combo parts and voiced for mixed, women and male choirs, this arrangement rocks the stage and makes a great novelty number with movement, costumes and staging, too.
Here We Come A-Caroling arr. Kirby Shaw
This Calypso style arrangement is set in a joyful a cappella voicing that will be a total blast to rehearse and perform. A great addition to holiday concerts, caroling and community performances!
Three Jazzy Bell Carols arr. Jay Rouse
Now in a NEW SSAA voicing, this bestselling choral of three, short a cappella jazz arrangements is a fabulous find for the holidays. “Ding Dong Merrily On High,” “Jingle Bells” and “Carol of the Bells” have been creatively arranged in tempo and style forming a wonderful collection of harmonies and rhythm for your holiday concert.
This Christmas arr. Paul Langford
What a modern holiday standard this song has become and covered by a wide range of artists! This chart-topping hit is set with a steady, a cappella vocal groove worthy of any jazz choir or ensemble. A familiar tune with a fresh new sound for your holiday concert.
