The Old Joes’ Choir is a Not for Profit alumni men’s choral group. This score and the performance of the same is not intended for commercial use. This score was developed as a result of experimentation and research in to the viability of reworking commercially popular music as choral works in an effort to make choral music more relevant and accessible. This score has also been used for the purpose of educating and motivating young musicians in the field of composition and scoring, in an effort to ignite interest in them, by the use of new age material which is commercially popular.
