When I Grow Up

From the musical

Matilda the Musical



Music by Tim Minchin

"When I Grow Up" was the first song that Tim Minchin wrote for Matilda, attempting to find a tone for the entire musical, drawing inspiration from his own child. He also drew inspiration from a childhood memory in which the adults on his grandfather's farm would fiddle with the padlock to a gate, whereas Minchin went out of his way to hurdle the gate, promising to himself to never open the farm gate.[

When I Grow Up

A little bit cheeky, a little bit naughty, but completely refreshing, multi-faceted composer Tim Minchin gives the 2011 West End adaptation of Roald Dahl's 1988 book Matilda a quick-witted and wry look into the hopes and desires of the friendly school children surrounding the title character. Bouncy and idiosyncratic, Emerson's arrangement captures the wonder!

Sweet Honey In The Rock : Experience 101 : 00  1 CD

Sweet Honey In The Rock : Experience 101

Sweet Honey in the Rock, the award-winning female African American ensemble, releases their first recording since Dr. Reagon's retirement and is the group's fourth CD for children. The CD's colorful packaging - an eyecatching digipack and a 16-page booklet in the style of a school composition notebook - contributes to the theme of learning through music. Children from the ages of 9 to 12 pose questions about the mysteries of the adult world in print, and the members of Sweet Honey (six vocalists at the time of this recording, now five, not counting their onstage sign language interpreter) respond with songs of about peaceful coexistence, the virtues of education, the nurturing support and reassurance of parents and elders, following one's moral and spiritual compass, and working to better the surrounding world. Emphasizing the group's roots in African culture, the songs are matched up in print to Adinkra symbols used in Ghana, West Africa, to indicate wisdom, strength, unity, good fortune, harmony and other emotions crucial to leading a meaningful life. The sound of Sweet Honey is almost intoxicating, as they deploy their voices in myriad combinations and styles - call-and-response, scatting, percolating percussive effects, waterfalls of harmonies and counterpoints, rounds, spoken rap-like segments, and just about every other pleasing way the human voice can be utilized.

Songlist: 4 U 2 Know As U Grow, Education the Key, When I Grow Up, All I Have to Do, Do What the Spirit Say Do, Right Now, Trust, In the Middle of the Night, Chinese Proverb, The Soul of Nature, Indaba: We Believe in You, Member of the World Community, Dog, Dog, I Like It That Way, Me is We, The Best Medicine, Gratitude, 4 U 2 Know As U Grow
