R&R Chair Children & Youth
This piece has a nice melody with several syncopations that provide some good teaching and musical challenges. The arrangement is excellent and gives opportunities for soloists. The text refers to a river on Cape Breton Island in the Canadian Maritime Province of Nova Scotia. It is of medium difficulty the chorus splits into 3 voices throughout the piece. The highest challenge is getting the rhythms right and respecting text accent throughout. Audiences like it. Kids like it.
