Sing the songs we're teaching the teachers

One facet of the Society's growing partnership with the American Choral Directors Association is presenting music-reading sessions at ACDA Division Conventions across the continent. Music educators get acquainted with a wide range of barbershop music suitable for their classrooms, which feeds excitement for the style, and incidentally, sells plenty of sheet music. Want to collaborate with a local educator? Start by knowing the music that we've been inviting them to sing! We'll feature a few of these in coming issues, or you can check  http://barbershop.org/top-charts/acda-reading-session-music.html. This week: Basin Street Blues features easy voice leading -- everything goes where it ought to go. A familiar classic for Barbershoppers. Bring Him Home makes a nice connection for young singers to the music theater tradition. Soulful and stirring, it encourages easy, effortless singing technique.
