Girlfriend (Icona Pop) SSAA A Cappella Arrangement/Cover

Hi! I hope everyone's having a good day! :) I just wanted to share something with you guys really quickly.

So, like many of you, I arrange music for a cappella and choirs. And I also love singing some of these arrangements myself!

I just posted a video on YouTube of me singing one of my a cappella SSAA arrangements, and I would love to hear your feedback on both the arrangement and the vocals. I want to do everything I can to improve!

Here's the video: https://youtu.be/fud4SxrsliU
And here's the sheet music: https://musescore.com/lareinedeslapins/girlfriend-ssaa-a-cappella

I would appreciate it so much if you guys would take a look at this. It means a lot to me.

Thank you! Have a lovely day! :D

SATB turning to SSA

I joined a non-audition choir recently that only has about 8 members. I just found out that the Bass (the only male) is leaving in a few months. We have some events coming up andneed help find some SSA arrangements. 

Just a little bit of background. Our S1s are S1s because they can only sing the melody and not because they can sing high. I often re-arrange music because of this. So anything where the melody is in a mezzo range is fine, I can give the high harmonies to the S2s.

Please help with recommendations! Thank you!

First time post - O Holy Night

Hello all! I've never posted in here before but was wondering if there was a way to request an arrangement. I'm looking for Home Free's version of O Holy Night for my a cappella group. Can someone help direct me to where I can request that? Or if I can EVEN request that. I don't really know. I'm not too familiar with the format here. Thank you in advance.

New SATB A Cappella Composition - The Gift to Sing

Hello! I thought I would share this with you guys really quickly. I set the poem "The Gift to Sing" for SATB choir, and figured you might like to hear it, since the meaning of the poem and the composition is one that many of us live by - there is nothing better or stronger than the gift to sing. :)

I would also love any critiques you would be willing to offer, because there are still a few chords and things here and there that I am unsure about. I know that this piece requires a big range for each vocal part, but I think it should be manageable (at least from a soprano's perspective) - so if you have any thoughts on that or anything else as well, I would love them!

This is a really special piece to me, as it is for my old choir director, who is the one who inspired me to pursue music as a career. I would appreciate any and all comments and critiques you have, because I want this to be as good as possible when I give it to her!

Thank you so much! Happy composing and arranging, everyone! :D

Fun Bass Songs?

Our group's got a Tim Foust/Avi Kaplan-level bass singer, and we're trying to find some arrangements that give him some room to really shine. He can pretty easily hit E1's and up, and with a little effort can rumble down to I think F#0 was our last measure. But we're really just looking for something that goes lower than E/D2. If anybody has something it'd be great to possibly see it!

A little info?

I was curious about what type of a capella music you are interested in collecting? Are you looking for arrangements of current pop songs? Are you affiliated with an a cappela church and looking for arrangements of worship songs?

Mashup

Having trouble figuring out a tune to Mashup with Kelly Clarkson's Piece by Piece. I think probably because I was trying to Mash Up Gaga's It Could Happen To You with it. But I can't seem to make the two work together other than transitioning from one to the other. Wanted to be able to mix the two. Not even sure if the two songs work together with the themes. Anyway, anyone have an idea? Appreciate some thoughts.

Notating for Beatboxing?

In a lot of my arrangements, I intend them to be performed by my 8 person a cappella group and our beatboxer. Is there any standard way to notate what I would like him to do, besides just going in with drums and renaming the line to Beatboxer? I'd be interested to see someone else's solution to this.

need help formatting the arrangements

Do any of you guys have trouble formatting your arrangements to print? It always seems like it's either too big and takes a million pages or too small on the page. What can I do to make my arrangements look decent without killing too many trees?
