This gorgeous standard is a must do. Most recently featured in the movie “Sleepless in Seattle,” this a cappella standard has good voice leading and an opportunity to show off a soloist. There are other arrangements of this tune out there, but for accessibility, Shaw’s arrangement is a good place to start. It will give you an opportunity to challenge your choir with a different vocal tone and will get their ears tuned into some very nice jazz harmonies. As it is a cappella in texture, it allows your students to become more independent and helps to develop good aural skills.
