Comment: Re: Comparable programs in churches with ~75 or less av. Sunday attendance?
YES!!! Count me in!  I work at a progressive American Baptist choir. Average congregation attendance is around 80, choir 8-14 (except at Christmas when I pull in friends and family to bump us up to 20).   I'd be happy to share our anthem list.  I have the added challenge of working within the c...
Comment: Re: Heart We Will Forget Him by ??? (in search of arranger/composer)
I wonder if it was the arrangment by James Mabry, part of the Janet Galvan Women's Chorale Series, though when I was singing under her in college we did the Mulholland (with french horn).

Comment: Re: MM Choral Conducting?

Comment: Re: Schools for choral direction/music education?
I did my undergrad in music education at Ithaca College and my master's at Columbia/Teacher's College.  That said...if Queens College had a summer program available I would have done my master's there. Their facilities and faculty were top notch.  It would be worth checking to see if that's stil...

We had a VERY successful anthem last weekend "Antiphonal Hosanna" for SATB choir and unison children and I'm looking for a similar piece. We have around a dozen children but most are onl...
