Sally has produced eleven choral movement DVDs and is the author of two books on the subject, Choral Music in Motion, Volumes 1 and 2.

An annual recipient of the ASCAP Special Music Award since 1987, Sally has over 325 popular choral publications in print, more than thirty larger elementary songbooks and musicals, three sacred cantatas, and the top-selling book The Choral Warm-Up Collection. Her composition We Are the Children was selected to open one of the MENC "World's Largest Concerts." Sally has directed and staged the half-time show singers performing during two Florida Citrus Bowls. She also has had the honor of conducting a 2003 National Middle School Choir performing at Lincoln Center, a National Children's Choir performing at Carnegie Hall, and two honor choirs performing at The Kennedy Center.

From there she moved to the University of Miami, where she received both an M.A. in Drama and an M.M. in Accompanying. She has worked with literally thousands of teachers and students through choral honors and all-state festivals, conventions, and workshops in over 40 states, Canada, Singapore, and Australia.

Sally and her husband, composer/arranger Jay Althouse, currently enjoy living in Raleigh, North Carolina. They were recently thrilled and honored to have their composition I Hear America Singing! performed during the 2009 Presidential Inauguration Ceremonies.

Lovely pieces written for younger singers. Some are high. These songs are meaningful with really pretty melodies. A couple are on the NFMC required list. A good book to have in my studio!

I use this book so much in my teaching that I needed to buy another copy, after the first one fell apart. I do enjoy the songs in this book, but there are some things I would like Ms. Albrecht to consider when publishing another similar colleciton.

I have seldom been able to assign this book to my vocal students because it runs just a little high for most of my voice students in what I consider the appropriate age group - and there aren't enough upbeat songs in this collection. I do love the arrangements, and I adore being able to use the CD with the co-ordinating choral arrangements also available separately. But I wish the overall repertoire was a little more varied.
