Description

Like much of Toby’s music, this piece is uncategorizable and sits somewhere between rock, folk, and choral music. It’s undeniably fun and an audience favorite just about every time. The yodeling counter-tenor solo can also be done by an Alto. Great for ambitious large ensembles or with one on a part.
