This is one of many pieces I have arranged, transcribed, or composed, some for educational purposes and others for fun. Please visit the Compositions & Arrangements page under the “Musician” heading for additional pieces.
I originally arranged this piece for myself and 6 of my friends (all vocal music educators) to sing at another friend’s wedding. The bride and groom initially met while we were all taking a summer graduate course at the Kodály Institute at New York University. I put a couple of our favorite Appalachian folk songs together into this “Kodály mash-up,” which I have titled “Appalachian Wedding Song.”
