Additional Musical Theatre Interval Examples

Postby laelhu » Oct 06, 2016 11:01 pm

I have a few additions to the musicals list!

The intro of "Washington On Your Side" from Hamilton is great for intervals:
ascending Major 3rd, ascending Perfect 4th, ascending minor 3rd, descending minor third

Ascending minor 3rd:
"Come to Me (Fantine's Death)" from Les Mis (on word "Cosette" at beginning)

Descending Perfect 4th:
"Don't Rain On My Parade" from Funny Girl (low ends of phrases like "comer" and "butter")
Ascending Perfect 5th:
"One Boy" from Bye, Bye, Birdie

Ascending minor 6th:
"Johanna" from Sweeney Todd (the one that Antony sings). ("I feel you")
"Unexpected Song" from Song and Dance ("hearing" on the very last word of the song)

Descending minor 6th:
"Unexpected Song" from Song and Dance ("...ted song" during the verses: F to A)

Ascending Major 6th:
"I Hope I Get It" from A Chorus Line ("I really need this job")
"Little Lamb" from Gypsy
"A Little Fall of Rain" from Les Mis ("Don't you fret")

Ascending Major 7th:
"The Spark of Creation" from Children of Eden

Ascending Octave:
"Singin' in the Rain" from Singin' in the Rain

Hope these help!
