34 thoughts on “Africa (SATB Choir) – Arranged by Roger Emerson

  1. I love this song! One small thing is that y’all messed up on the lyrics. Y’all said “Hurry boy it’s waiting there for you” instead of “Hurry boy she’s waiting there for you” the last time.

  2. I love Africa by Toto, but haven't enjoyed rehearsing this arrangement of it, so far, but this may help. Useful having the pages turning at the right time.

  3. We’re doing this song for music feast (something my choir does to raise funds and give the community an opportunity to see our choir) and the theme for this year was 80’s and we’ve broken into song 1000 times when anyone would mention this song so of course my choir teacher found this to be the best fit. Needless to say I don’t think anyone is disappointed that this is our group piece.

  4. I don't want to be the one person who picks apart this arrangement, because don't get me wrong its amazing, but you've completely butchered the ending! The drum patterns in the end is missing a drum fill, and theres an entire repeat missing, not to mention the amazing solo that goes with it. if it weren't for that, I would being love with this tune. Another thing, at the beginning of each chorus, the beats are off, when they say "- a lot to drag me away-", they're coming in late and adding an extra beat, totally ruining the flow.

  5. It's not how I'd usually pick a piece, but I've ended a fairly miserable week, saw this was new, played it, and before long I started imaging directing our chorus, me weaving side to side, them smiling and beaming, and the audience clapping on 2 and 4. Just one giant high time in the ol' auditorium. Thanks for a wonderful end to a horrible week. This will be highly recommended when it's music committee time.
