FireBright! is a piece that will get your singers excited! When I started teaching it my middle school-aged group they immediately loved the intensity and driving force right through to the end. I realized there were many teachable opportunities: the pulsing 12/8 time, the la-based natural minor melody, the occasional unexpected shift to major harmonies, word painting, and many poetic and literary devices. The rolling and fiery piano part for FireBright! requires a skilled accompanist. Singers will love easy but effective body percussion and harmonic crunches. FireBright! is perfect for concerts with themes of Fire & Ice,, Colors, Halloween, or Elements.
