Raise Your Voice In Song
One of Claude T. Smith’s last completed works, “Raise Your Voice in Song” was commissioned by the Nebraska Music Educators Association for the 50th Anniversary on NMEA! It was written for the 1986 All-State Band, Choir and Orchestra for their combined performance on November 22, 1986 in Hastings, NE. This majestic work lends itself as a finale, for band alone, or a combined performance with string orchestra and/or choir (available separately.) There are two sets of lyrics (secular and Christmas).
