      Attractive arrangement, not too difficult for the choir. Sounds quite impressive.
      Accompaniment a bit tricky in a couple of places

      This is a great arrangement. After a 'maestoso' piano introduction, it swings into 'Tonight', over a syncopated accompaniment which drives it forward. 'I Feel Pretty' is wittily arranged, 'Maria' is beautifully arranged for the four voices and 'America' is the fun you'd expect it to be. 'One Hand, One Heart' has tenor and soprano solos, plus the full chorus. We've used this arrangement a couple of times now, to the delight of our audiences, and what I like best about it is the finale, which is a beautiful build-up using 'Somewhere', occasionally with a countermelody in soprano and tenor against the melody in alto and bass. The end is positively thrilling. Our choir loved it as much as the audience did.

      Check out "West Side Story - Choral Suite" (arranger the talented Mac Huff) before you buy your choir this edition. You may find the choral arrangements in that one more approachable by singers of moderate ability.

      We are a new community choir and have just begun rehearsing this medley. It's quite challenging but everyone loves the music and with lots of practice this is sure to be a winner. The score is clear and straightforward to read.
