MUSIC - SONG FOR YOUTH - Music for Concert Band and Choir
(Click on the images above to view example scores)
Song For Youth was written by Christopher Binns in 1985 for
International Youth Year. Composed especially for youth choir with
piano and band accompaniment, it is an exuberant and joyful
expression of optimism and resilience for the “youth of the world”.
The song has been performed widely in a variety of arrangements,
ranging from unison youth choir with piano, to large choral forces
supported by combined concert wind bands.
The work can be further augmented by the addition of a 4-part choir
with parts for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.
Often presented as a finale to a concert, this energetic and powerful
musical statement ensures that concerts end on a high note for
performers and audience alike.
