LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, June 09, 2011

Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, releases Showbiz!: A Choral Movement DVD, an instructional guide for staging popular Alfred choral titles, with Sally K. Albrecht and Andy Beck.

Showbiz!: A Choral Movement DVD features fun and easy step-by-step staging suggestions for 12 Alfred Choral titles, presented by Alfred editors, composers, choreographers, and clinicians Sally K. Albrecht and Andy Beck. Each song is taught in three sections: Complete Performance, with Sally and Andy facing the camera, mirroring the movement of the performers; Instruction Time, with explanatory direction, descriptions, and helpful options given as needed; and the exclusive “Double Shot” performance, where movements are viewable at once from behind and in the mirror. Perfectly suited for two-part choirs as well as mixed groups, Showbiz!: A Choral Movement DVD features a host of fun and fresh staging ideas for choirs of all ages, sizes, and performance levels.

The instructional DVD features inventive movements in a clear and easy-to-follow presentation, as Sally and Andy are able to demonstrate counterpoint movement simultaneously. In the thirteenth installment to Alfred’s Choral Movement Series, choirs will enjoy singing and dancing the choreography to such popular titles as “Get Happy,” “If I Only had a Brain,” “Showbiz Snowman!,” and many more.
