This week’s New and Never Performed Friday Release is Alive by The Scarlet Opera.
This SATB closer is a powerful way to close out a show. There is a pretty hefty tenor solo throughout, which opens the chart. The soloist is eventually backed up by the choir through the second part of the verse and chorus before the tempo kicks up into the second half. The choir takes over at the second verse, which builds into the second chorus in dramatic fashion. This is followed by a killer dance break where you can feature a guitar player, or just let the horn parts soar. This is followed by the return of the soloist in a pull back chorus moment that builds into the final chorus through a hit section. The final chorus features back and forth between the treble and bass clef singers before building into a dramatic ending. This chart is new and has never been performed – your choir could be the first!
The track features Brian McCallister & Ines Cring on vocals, and Alec McKeska on guitar.
Stay tuned for several more Scarlet Opera charts over the next couple weeks!
