Any tips for music performance?

Recommended Posts

I'm in my second year of IB, and my music teacher wants us to plan our 20 minute recital over Christmas but I'm really struggling to come up with 20 minutes worth of songs. Most of my class are done with just 2 or 3 pieces on orchestral instruments, but as a singer I've got to find three times as many.

So far I've got definitely:

Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal

Someone to Watch Over Me

and possibly:

I mio babbino caro

Fields of Gold

Ye Banks and Braes

But even with all five that still only takes me to around 12 minutes, any ideas?

I don't recognize many of the songs you've mentioned, so you might not recognize my suggestions, but I'll give them a try--

  • Greensleeves
  • Little Drummer Boy
  • O Holy Night

These are my favorite to sing during the holiday season. I have sung other great songs in choir but they contained multiple voice parts so they probably wont help...

You should consider asking your music teachers from the past (voice instructors, school choir directors, etc.) to help you find some solos, they are usually too eager to help.
