Well, there hasn't been much posting on this site from me for a while. I've had a lot going on. We homeschool and I changed curriculums about a month and a half ago. I'm the Stake Music Chair and we had our Stake Conference in April, and I got to play some of my original music in a benefit concert this past Saturday. In the mean time, we're 5 months pregnant and I keep working on painting various parts of the house, because that's just what I do when I'm pregnant.
I've been pretty excited about my most recent idea for my Stake music calling. Every May there is a seminary graduation that they ask me to plan a special musical number for. This year I thought it would be awesome if the youth were in charge of every part of the music for this graduation. As part of that I decided to put together a youth choir, and assign a youth conductor and pianist. They will be singing Peace In Christ-the youth theme song for 2018. As you probably know if you're reading this, there is only a solo version available online. I went ahead and wrote parts in for the chorus and re-entered everything into Finale and am making it available to you. It's nothing super fancy or complicated, and I felt silly adding my name as arranger because I barely did anything--but it's still worth sharing and making your life easier! We will be having the girls sing verse 1 unison and the boys sing verse 2 unison. You could always cut each verse in half and go back and forth more, OR you could throw in a soloist or two.
As a side note--we are having our pianist play the piano part off of the original free PDF because it's more simple--only 2 pages versus 5 or 6. She is just referencing my version for when she needs to plunk out the parts.
Hope you enjoy this! I would love to know if you use it and what you use it for!
Peace In Christ SAB
P.S. It is now 2 months later. I took this post down to get permission from the church to share this arrangement. I now have official permission! Yay!
Also, the youth choir ended up performing it a little different than I thought they would. They had a soloist for verse one, then everyone sang verse 2 together unison. It turned out so beautiful with all the youth and the parts. I hope you are able to use it in your wards and stakes!
As always, you CONTINUALLY AMAZE ME! You are a Wonder. 💜💜💜ReplyDelete
