"Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves"
Date: July 16, 2009
This is such a magnificent tool!
I am taking on a new community choir responsibility and am developing the programming. I've hit upon a theme for our spring concert--a "tribute" to Cher, I guess, entitled "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves." I've already chosen the following literature:
Bizet--Smugglers Chorus from Carmen
Verdi--Anvil Chorus from Il Trovatore
I'm also considering the spiritual "Trampin'", which isn't REALLY in the true spirit of the theme.
I feel very comfortable with the Gypsies portion of this program, but would really appreciate ideas about how to augment the Tramps and the Thieves sections. Any suggestions? I seem to be hitting a mental wall!
Thanks in advance to all!
