Spring Concert

Our theme for the spring concert will be "Broadway." I have a few ideas about what we can sing, but am open to more. Be advised that songs from shows Bigelow has done the last few years (Music Man, Guys and Dolls, Peter Pan) or that we will do in the future (Joseph) are right out. We'll probably also try to steer clear of shows Bigelow did a while ago and might do again, like Into the Woods, Seussical, and the Wizard of Oz. Other than that, so long as it's appropriate for school (I'm pretty sure that rule eliminates EVERYTHING from Avenue Q) it's fair game. Post a comment if you have a suggestion!


  1. This is an AWESOME theme! I think we should do something from Wicked, Mamma Mia, or Hairspray. I would love to do some music from West Side Story but that music is very hard and each song is usually for one part, (soprano, alto, bass).

  2. Hello Ms. A!

    I have four specific song ideas. Each is attached to a video that will entice you, believe me.

    I Believe from "Spring Awakening" (ignore the dancing and clapping).

    In the Beginning (finale) from "Children of Eden". (Start video 50 seconds in):

    Hear My Song from "Songs for a New World":

    AND the one I've been pressuring you to do because it is the world's greatest thing ever ever ever (Make Our Garden Grow- "Candide").

    Hope you consider these! (especially the last one...)

  3. I agree that Wicked would be good, but I feel like we've done a lot of song from there already (example, last year graduation chorus).

    I think 42nd Street would be fun 'cause it's upbeat. Uh, Chicago is not appropriate, I guess... OH, how about the Lion King? That would be /awesome/.
