September 23, 2016 -

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.

Tyler ForsytheI pay $40 per year in one choir. The one I direct charges $132 per year. A previous choir I was in charged $77 per semester. I know of another that has a $600 per year suggested donation.

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.

The Colburn Children’s Choir’s third Classical Movements tour brought the choir to Portugal and Spain where they enjoyed a festival performance in Lisbon, three collaborative concerts with local choirs in Spain, and a concert in Iglesia de la Magdalena in the historic UNSECO World Heritage center of Cordoba. In addition to experiencing Portugal’s domination of the European Championship on the night of their concert in Lisbon, the highlights of the tour were the collaborative workshops and concerts with the three local choirs in Spain, including extensive press coverage of the collaboration with Coro Meridianos, an el Sistema-like choir in Seville.
