Send your graduating seniors off with music with one of these new choral titles, perfect for spring concerts, graduation, or baccalaureate ceremonies!
Deep Peace I Send to You by Douglas E. Wagner
“Deep peace of a soft white dove to you; Deep Peace of a quiet rain; Deep peace of the ebbing wave to you. Deep peace I send to you.” This incredibly beautiful and heartrending setting of a precious text by William Sharp makes an especially effective concert closer or encore.
You Will Be Found (from Dear Evan Hansen) arr. Mac Huff
The powerful Act I closer from the Broadway hit musical “Dear Evan Hansen” explores the complexities of social connectivity and our need for respect and love. A perfect choral showcase for pop and concert choirs!
Stand By Me (with Lean On Me) arr. Kirby Shaw
Two top inspirational songs of the 60s and 70s are seamlessly paired in this setting that will lift your singers to new heights. Fantastic closer or graduation selection!
Together We Are! by Brian Tate
Featuring a fun gospel feel, straightforward harmonic writing, and text about togetherness and community, this accessible, up-tempo piece is the perfect concert closer.
We’ll Meet Again arr. Roger Emerson
This song, one of the most famous of the World War II era, was reprised on the last broadcast of “The Colbert Report” by Stephen Colbert and an assembled crowd of many of his most prominent guests. A great concert closer or graduation selection!
