Green Songs is a very accessible set of songs by Bob Chilcott – fun to learn, fun to teach, fun to hear, and with a great message. There are four contrasting songs in the set – a bluesy song about turning off the heat (“Be Cool”), an exciting romp enticing us to get out of our cars (“On Your Bike”), a charming ballad about taking care of the earth (“Keep It Good”) and a straight-out rap about the usefulness of the ozone layer (“Nozone”). If your spring concert is close to Earth Day, this could be a very suitable program choice.
