Saturday Afternoon (songbook)
Football song – song for boys – ideal for getting reluctant boys to sing
This piece has been revolutionary for music teachers with the age old problem of getting boys to sing. This is perfect for getting reluctant boys to sing – that’s what it was written for. The choir should, if possible, be tiered as if they are standing on football terraces. Capturing the excitement of going to watch your team play, it can be performed as if on terraces and there are suggestions of visual and stage direction noted on the next page. This song was written primarily to get reluctant boys to sing (but girls are welcome to sing too!) It’s musically quite simple, the words are engaging and it splits simply into 2, 3 and then 4 parts!
Includes: Full score (with piano), Performance and backing track CD, Photocopiable lyrics.
