The age-old issue of recruitment in traditional church choir
Date: June 2, 2009
I direct a small and currently shrinking adult choir in a small town. I believe I have only one singer who is younger than 50. All my current choir members are pretty good singers, so that's a blessing.
I've lost 2 altos to age and illness in the last couple of years. And just learned I am losing a soprano as well. We have begun a contemporary service that is drawing families and younger adults. I am involved in some of the music in that service, but I do not direct it. My Chancel Choir sings only for the traditional service.
Thanks in advance for your input on this perrenial issue.
