for unison upper voices (with optional parts), brass quintet, and optional percussion A Sporting Chance is a fun and lively choral work on the theme of sport, games, and exercise. Each of the seven movements celebrates a different sport - you'll find running, soccer, weightlifting, and more - and words by the composer provide an entertaining narrative of each event. Look out for exciting choral effects, such as panting, rapping, and grunting, as well as active audience participation and even a slow-motion race from the trumpet players. Scored for unison upper voices with optional extra parts, this crowd-pleaser will have both choir and audience cheering for their home team and willing the athlete to 'run for gold'! Scores and instrumental parts are available on hire/rental. The lyrics are available separately to print or project.

About Bob Chilcott

Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music
