Jack and the Beanstalk (2012)
for children's choir, baritone, chamber orchestra, narrator | 20:00

For youth choir (SSA), baritone(s), chamber orchestra (1d1,1d1,1,1 - 1,1,1 - perc, hp, str), narrator.
A dramatic, fun retelling of the classic children's fairy tale.
Originally composed and performed by the Immaculata Symphony Orchestra and the Kennett Symphony Children's Chorus, this popular and catchy suite has been adapted and arranged for youth chorus and chamber orchestra (with guest baritone(s) singing the part of the giant). This arrangement is more compact than the orchestral version, but makes greater use of the choir with more songs and expanded lyrics. Fun for young musicians and audiences alike!
