Thread Name: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Good point about the choir, Mo. It highlights the fact that sometimes the style in which a song is done is as important as the song itself. On that basis I think songs from the shows, pop songs or even folk songs would be acceptable at an orchestral concert as long as they were done in an orchestral style. Conversely, seeing as you mention a specific composer, there have been plenty of instances of classical music used in pop - It does not remain classical if done in a pop style. In my opinion.
