from “Girl From The North Country”
Simple, tender, and breathtaking, this rendition of the Bob Dylan song — newly interpreted for the Broadway musical Girl From The North Country — bears little resemblance to the Rod Stewart version. If you need a hear-a-pin-drop moment for your concert, this is it.
from “Anything Goes”
One of Cole Porter's most well-known songs, here done up as a splashy production number that goes a lot of places, this musical theatre classic wows audiences and choristers alike! This arrangement appears as the opening number in the men's chorus revue Swellegant Elegance: the life and music of Cole Porter.
Premiered in 1984, the knockout team of Tim Rice, Benny Andersson, and Björn Ulvaeus crafted a groundbreaking pop musical about the Cold War, revolving around an international chess tournament. The standout number, here set for men's chorus, was the infectious One Night In Bangkok, guaranteed to light up your audiences!
from “In The Heights”
Bright, sparkling, and full of infectious Latin rhythm, the title number from Lin-Manuel Miranda's smash Broadway hit is a real gem of showcraft for your men's chorus, capturing the flavors of the original production.
The highly stylized 2018 dance-pop track from singer Troye Sivan appears here in a much different context: sophisticated 5-part a cappella men's chorus treatment, evoking impressionistic, painterly scenes. A stand-out for chorus or small ensemble.
Written and produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, this stark, gritty urban anthem from Madonna offers both vivid imagery of the LGBTQ struggle for equality and bright hope for the future. Arranged here for men's chorus.
You know the hand movements for it. Your audience knows the hand movements for it. Here it is, the ultimate, time-honored audience pleaser that rocked 1978, and still is popular today! Arranged for men's chorus and pit orchestra. And hand movements!
All the dance-funk, all the pride, all the time! Scored for men's chorus, rhythm, and blazing horn section, this 1980 Diana Ross hit still pops, hard!
In 1982, US audiences were not quite ready for a full-on, gay coming out story. Making Love caused a lot of waves, and greatly hindered the careers of the actors involved. But being ahead of its time didn't diminish the resonance and power of its themes, particularly as evidenced in the Bayer Sager/Bacharach title song, sung timelessly by Roberta Flack; here, arranged for men's chorus.
This quirky, charming, positive-message country tune is pure fun for anyone listening! Arranged for men's chorus.
1977 saw funk-disco group Heatwave release an instant dance hit with Boogie Nights, written by Rod Temperton. Here it crackles in an a cappella setting, its only accompaniment a solo cajon drum. A stand-out for your men's chorus small ensemble (or venturesome chorus!)
One of the most well-known and well-loved LGBTQ Pride anthems, this stirring number soars in a setting for men's chorus.
Pink's infectious, triumphant dance-pop anthem soars here, scored for men's chorus, rhythm section, and horns. Raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways!
A soaring, epic take on this 1972 hit, Hothouse Flowers turned a dated pop tune into an exciting, breezy contemporary classic. Scored here for TTBB chorus.
Originally released in 1973 by Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77, this infectious Latin-styled pop tune has an upbeat, positive-message lyric and plenty of chances for your TTBB chorus to shine.
Focusing entirely on the lyric as a message of uplifting positivity, this atypical men's chorus arrangement of Katy Perry's blockbuster uptempo pop hit becomes a tender, emotional, and powerfully sensitive ballad.

From singer/songwriter Greg Holden, this gripping song evokes all the pain of coming out and the resolution and joy of acceptance. Powerful!
Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels
The very definition of the word FIERCE, this outrageous spoken-word number from Todrick Hall is both a tour-de-force for your TTBB chorus and a guaranteed house-burner. Work, honey!
Mid-tempo pop anthem celebrating the loving family relationships we create ourselves. A lush, powerful song for TTBB chorus.

Newly revised and sporting updated instrumentation, these classic rock tunes still zing!
from “The Sound Of Music”
WARNING! This is not your grandmother's “Lonely Goatherd!” This highly derivative version for men's chorus starts quietly with an echoing dissemblage of the verse, then launches into bangin' hip-hop for the remainder. Raucous and outrageous, this is sure to rock your audience's world!
