Every Time Papa Steps Off The Train
Papa’s homecoming is a joyful ritual
- A – B – A – Coda
After a soloist freely introduces the first phrase of the A theme, a jaunty melody ensues, with simple harmony. The B section is characterized by playful scatting back and forth between the two sections of the chorus. The A theme happily returns again and papa and child tumble into each other’s arms in the coda! This song provides a delightful experience for singer and audience alike!
nice solo opportunity in the introduction; the swing rhythm of this piece might be enhanced with some simple choralography
- family-themed concert
