The past few years I have used these songs for the Grade 5 Moving On Ceremony at the end of the year. “It’s Out Time” by Teresa Jennings from Music K8, “Reach” by Gloria Estefan from the SOM series, and even a song by Coldplay. I am wondering if you have any other favorite songs that would work well ideally with a good instrumental recording, or simple Orff accompaniment, for a mixed choir of about 40 singers. I’m looking a lot in Music K8 and SOM but open to other suggestions. Thanks!
I’ve used Count On Me by Bruno Mars, which has a simple and very repetitive chord progression that could be good for Orff instruments or a student with piano or guitar abilities. Sweet message, easy to learn, and a relatively current favorite of many upper elementary/middle school students. I’m not sure about finding a choral arrangement – we’ve just used a vocal/piano score with all students singing in unison, but it came together nicely!
