Spring 2021 Program
Jeff shares new program ideas for our spring singing:
joy; sounds from different places and people; how we think of ourselves, and others.
Welcome Dance Song
Wabenaki/Northeast American Indian song
I Celebrate Myself
Walt Whitman text
Music by John Michael Trotta
Song by Sayed Darwish (Egypt)
Arranged by Edward Torikian (Armenia)
Early in the morning, someone wakes up to prepare the bread of the day. In the meantime, the sound of the rooster is heard—“ku ku ku ku”—and the entire neighborhood awakens. People begin to greet to each other happily. Their pockets are empty but their mood is peaceful, convinced of hope.
VIDEO LINK: SONG BEGINS AT ABOUT 3:28
Old Irish work song about two kinds of seaweed; one to dye clothing, another to eat. (There is a little more to it.) The solo can be sung by different voices/voice parts!
arr. Fulton (Canada)
I think one simply needs to hear it. Whoop-ah.
No Color (Can Stand Between Us)
See the second clip for a scrolling score/text. The rest of the phrase, "can come between us," is very important.
(No Color - performance with score)
