A new Song Cycle for 2018!

SPACE RACE
Available NOW for instant download.

2019 will be the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
To commemorate this event, this song cycle traces the big moments in the journey to conquer space.
  1. Gagarin (Beyond Blue Sky) - in 1961 the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first person to leave Earth's atmosphere and orbit the planet.
  2. Space Race (To Every Question) - in 1962 President Kennedy announced the goal to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade.
  3. The Children of the World (July 1969) - the moon landing and its profound effect on the imaginations of children around the world.
  4. Apollo 11 (Homecoming) - the goal had been achieved, now for the tense drama of returning the three astronauts home safely.
Listen to the songs and preview the scores.

What's it about?
The Cooper family has endured a long hard drought on the farm but there is hope on the horizon.

Jilly’s father looks to the sky. ‘There is no treasure more valuable,’ he tells his children, ‘than a drop of rain.’ So when a single drop falls, Jilly and her younger brother, Harry, vow to keep that treasure safe. They engage in a wild game of imagining and must use all their craftiness and cunning to keep it safe from marauding (but not very smart) pirates and greedy outlaws!

Will this precious jewel be safe - and will those clouds bring the rains that will save the farm?

A song cycle of five songs and a chant/rap that tells the story of popular music and dance. more…

From the rhythms that came to America with the African slaves to the hip hop of today. Along the way reference is made to other events happening at the time. The songs are linked with a chant-like 'call and response' section called The Beat.

This work is suitable for singers from age 8 and older. Some songs include a soloist and a rapper. It can be performed as a whole - but each song also works as a stand-alone piece.

The Songs
  • The Beat (call and response/rap)
  • The Jazz Age (1920s-30s)
  • Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie (1940s)
  • Dance Craze Crazy (1950s-60s)
  • Disco Diva (1970s-80s)
  • Mixing The Beats (1980s to present)
A mini opera in which we learn about Mozart’s life and music. more…

The three main characters are Wolfie (Mozart as a child of 6), his father Leopold and his sister Marianne, often called Nannerl.

The soloists are supported by a 2-part choir. For ages 8 and older to perform.

The Songs
  • Ah, vous dirai je Maman (choir)
  • That's My Boy (Leopold and choir))
  • My Little Brother (Nunnerl and choir)
  • Austrian Idol On Tour (choir)
  • Genius At Work (vocal and piano solos)
  • Live Forever More (choir)
