“We Are Lights (A Chanukah Song)” –Stephen Schwartz This lyrical, expressive original by Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz is a top choice for December concerts. A beautiful accompaniment provides the perfect underlay for the universal message: "We are glowing, growing miracles; we are lights." Grades 2 and 3 sang this song beautifully!
The familiar African saying, "It takes a village to raise a child," is appropriately set to tribal-sounding music in this marvelous cross-cultural feature. A great closer, this piece is a proven audience favorite!
Dreidl Spin! For a Hanukkah season, we bring you an adaptation of a traditional song about the iconic dreidl, however you want to spell it. The ending features a brief reprise of the song's ending and a slower, more dramatic tempo. The first time through, this may be a bit of a surprise for your singers, but after a few times, it should feel quite natural. Let the recorders play, too! On your score you will see a recorder part just under the vocal part.
