Reply To: Contemporary music in the chorus classroom
Pop songs are good to do. I don’t think I’d ever do a total pop concert, but I always include one or two pop songs on my concerts. It keeps the kids excited and teaches them that singing is really fun. It goes a long way to building energy in your program. Additionally, Pop songs are well received at community performances and the energy that the kids put forth when they sing the music they like does carry over into the other music.
