Click to listen to podcast version:  7 Ways to Love Your Choir Be the leader they need You wouldn’t know this since I’m the guy who wrote “Your choir sucks because you suck”, but I’m a sappy, open, and vulnerable choir director. It doesn’t take much to get me all choked

Rebecca KinclMy choir is currently organized and run through the city's parks and recreation department. We charge $25/month, which is lower than many I'm sure. The previous choir I was a member of charged between $250-300 (I think) for the year. These two choirs are in very different socioeconomic areas.

Amber Day SumnerI'm sure my community chorus is on the cheaper end, but we have dues of $45 per semester. Chorus members are responsible for their performance outfits as well ($130 dress for the ladies, tux rentals for men) and for a black performance folder. We are a non-auditioned group and usually have around 30 singers.
