Read a Book (converging song)
David wrote this 3-part converging song for large groups of students to sing during literature-based songwriting residencies. The introduction is a rhythmic version of the 3 vocal parts, composed entirely of "book" sounds. Billy Jonas helped us out singing the third vocal line. Thanks to Joanne Hammil for introducing us to the idea of converging songs.
