“Sing to Me” by Laura Farnell

recommended by Jen Sper, School Choral Music Specialist

You can always count on Laura Farnell to write excellent music for middle school singers – she innately understands their strengths and their weaknesses, and knows how to make them successful musicians! I was pleased to accompany the premiere performance of “Sing to Me” with the Ohio Music Education Association District X Junior High Honor Choir in November of 2015, under the direction of Loren Veigel. The students were SO EXCITED to be premiering the work, and about having a commissioned piece written “just for them!”

Sing to Me by Laura Farnell
Younger and developing mixed choirs will shine in this lyrical and expressive setting. Rubato phrases gently unfold over an accompaniment that is profound in its simplicity. Well-crafted part-writing will help build performance skills!
