PS 159 Chorus

4th Graders will be responsible for these songs in addition to the songs listed on the main chorus page.

This delightful tone painting starts with an accented vocal theme creating the image of flickering fireflies on a dark summer night. Carefully selected ranges and intervals, youthfully inquisitive lyrics, a delicate accompaniment and a whispered ending all add up to a very special concert feature for young choirs!  

01 Firefly


02 Boatmen


Marked to be performed "boisterously," this original Michael Gray work in the style of a sea chantey is a true choral classic!
