The Songs We Sing…The Land We Love
Created by Deborah Craig-Claar
Arranged and Orchestrated by Russell Mauldin
America is a nation that sings! And we are a people who have always shared our extraordinary story through song. This exhilarating musical heritage is beautifully celebrated in Word Music’s newest patriotic musical, It’s America! from the stellar creative team of Russell Mauldin and Deborah Craig-Claar. Brimming with patriotic exuberance and nostalgic charm, It’s America! includes a stirring George M. Cohan tribute, a rich medley of traditional folk songs, and a uniquely moving vocal setting of “Taps” to honor our fallen heroes. At a rehearsal-friendly 30 minutes in length, Russell Mauldin’s signature vocal arrangements and orchestrations and Deborah Craig-Claar’s well-crafted, historically flavored narrations make the musical accessible for choirs of any size. A spectacular DVD Accompaniment Track is the crowning touch, making this down-home, up-lifting slice of Americana the perfect choice for both community and church presentations.
