Dear Choral Directors,
Thank you so much for your continued support of BriLee music! We know you will find selections that will perfectly suit your ensemble in this year’s 2013 choral catalog as we have continued to work toward our goal of providing quality music for the middle school/developing chorus.
BriLee Music isn’t exclusively for middle school ensembles. It finds tremendous success and popularity within the ranks of the developing high school chorus, as well. In fact, every year we find a number of groups ranging from fifth grade through high school choose to perform BriLee titles.
We are committed to following founder Brian Busch’s writing guidelines and offer a wide assortment of unison/two-part works, as they work so well at many levels within the developing chorus. I would encourage you to continue to challenge your ensembles with unison singing, keeping in mind that, while teaching choirs to sing independently in parts is important, there are also wonderful teaching opportunities that present themselves in unison settings. However, as your ensemble develops in ability, BriLee is there with strikingly appropriate two-part and SSA selections as well.
BriLee continues to uphold the reputation as a leading publisher of works targeting the male changing voice. Our writers always demonstrate great care to provide quality literature to fit the range and temperament of the Middle School and developing High School male.
When it comes to our free director resources, you will notice that, in response to overwhelmingly positive feedback, we are once again providing full-length recordings of every title in MP3 format, as well as the complete score in PDF format. This makes it easy to transfer these files to your Smartphone, iPod, MP3 player, website, and more. In addition, we continue to hear great things about our free Part-by-Part resources, featuring FREE part-dominant recordings. Make sure you look for our growing solo collections for the developing male and treble voices.
As always, we look forward to serving you, meeting you, and listening to you at the many state and national conferences we attend.
