Composition Spotlight: We Are The Music Makers
Date: March 1, 2015
COMPOSITION SPOTLIGHT ~ by Jack Senzig
(Each week we look at a piece of useful repertoire from the ChoralNet Community Composition Showcase. A variety of voicings and levels of difficulty will be presented. Enjoy!)
Level: High School or higher
Uses: General Concert Use
Program Themes: The title would be a great anchor piece for other songs about music makers.
This piece would program well with: Crying for a Dream by René Clausen available at JWPepper and Sheet Music Plus
Not all pieces in the Composition Showcase are by self-published composers. Published and self-published composers are welcome. The requirement that composers offer only their six best works with no more than three in the same voicing helps to insure that only quality works are displayed. Tom Council's We Are the Music Makers is published by Colla Voce. If you are looking for a powerfully stirring number for any concert this piece will deliver, especially when using brass accompaniment.
This works is available through Colla Voce Music, Inc.
