35006968, SATB, $2.50
An up-beat text, an extremely singable melody, and lots of rhythmic excitement make this contemporary piece by Mark Hayes a great choice for your top junior high or younger high school choir. The lyrics speak of the bright future ahead for today’s young people and then implore the listeners to be a part of that future by encouraging, challenging, and guiding the next generation as they "spread their wings and fly!" Though there are sections of 4-parts, the majority of the anthem is unison or 2-part, and the ranges of the voices are carefully written to make them readily accessible to younger singers; a rhythmic whispering/speaking section is particularly suited to that age and effectively builds excitement leading into the final refrain. The piano accompaniment is not difficult, and you will find the instrumental parts or accompaniment CD to be a dynamic addition to your performance. Perfect for end-of-year concerts and graduation events.
