If you are looking for a humorous and memorable piece your men will love, this may be the piece for you. “Johnny Schmoker” is a Pennsylvania Dutch folk song that repeatedly asks, “Can you sing?” After each refrain, the chorus responds by “playing” an instrument (with their voices, of course). From the falsetto of the flute to the low rumbles of the bass drum, your singers will truly become better acquainted with their voices. Add instrumental pantomiming (done by the entire choir) and you have a spectacle for all to enjoy. Medium
