New 100% Reproducible Winter Holiday Mini-Musicals Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Alfred Music Publishing, the world’s largest educational print music publisher since 1922, releases two new wintertime holiday musicals: Stormy, the Singing Snowman, (by Sally K. Albrecht & Jay Althouse) and Jingle Bell Jukebox . . . The Flip Side! (by Sally K. Albrecht, Jay Althouse, Andy Beck, and Brian Fisher). Both musicals were orchestrated by Tim Hayden.

Stormy, the Singing Snowman is the perfect winter mini-musical for grades 2 – 7. Written for unison and two-part singers, the 25-minute musical tells the story of a singing snowman named Stormy. He and his Forest Chorus friends decide to audition for the popular Snowfest Choir in town, all hoping to get the big solo. Staging notes and reproducible student pages are included in the Teacher's Handbook.
Titles: Celebrate Snow! * There's Always Room for One More * If They Only Knew * Boogie Down to Harmony Lane * One World * Finale.

Jingle Bell Jukebox . . . The Flip Side! is the exciting sequel to Alfred’s popular Jingle Bell Jukebox, delivering even more Christmas cheer. Recommended for grades 3 – 8, the musical is a presentation of holiday hits arranged in two-part voicings. Program these favorite holiday songs individually, as a concert set, or as a simply staged 35-minute musical (using the optional soda-shop-setting script). The set includes complete choreography and is 100% Reproducible.
Titles: Jingle Bell Jukebox * Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer * Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town * All I Want Is . . . Nuttin'! * Mele Kalikimaka * Winter Wonderland * Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree * Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas * Welcome Christmas.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, the musical songbooks are printed on 100% recycled paper.

Stormy, the Singing Snowman and Jingle Bell Jukebox . . . The Flip Side! price-saving Book & Enhanced SoundTrax CD kits are now available for $64.99 each at music retail stores and at alfred.com/classroom. The Teacher’s Handbooks and Enhanced SoundTrax CDs are also sold separately.
