And So It Goes

I have to say, I have been arranging for many years, and this arrangement is one of my proudest works. Each phrase and chord is thoughtfully chosen to reflect Billy Joel’s moving lyrics, and the piece progresses from simple humming, to homophonic group singing of the text, to complex interweaving textures, to a belted climax and sudden cut-out that are sure to take the audience’s breath away. The chords in this song seem to linger in the air, and taking time to really listen to the lyrics is a very powerful experience. All summer long, audience members told us that this was one of their favorite pieces they’ve heard us sing, and I’m sure that if you add it to your repertoire, it will become a favorite for your singers and audiences as well.
