Community Choirs

A community choir is a choir that draws its membership from a community at large, not restricted to a single institution. This means that community children's choirs, symphony choruses, professional, semi-professional and amateur choirs, can all fall under the genre of community choir. All of these choirs are unique yet all are the same for they share the goals of advancing the choral art through rehearsal and performance and the production of beautiful vocal music. These standards are meant to be an active document, a source of discussion and reflection. They can apply to any community choir, professional or amateur, big or small, for they are all engaged in promoting musical activities that enhance the community choral art.

This committee has set forth performance standards, repertoire suggestions and resources. Those can be found on
