Chorus America is carefully monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation regarding our events. Our top priority at all events and meetings is our members' and participants' health and safety.

As we move ahead with our Conference plans, we are working closely with our event partners and local officials to stay up-to-date on the latest developments and recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In the meantime, we’ve made the following changes:

  • Our Early Bird Conference registration deadline is now May 5
  • We’ve updated our refund policy to offer a full refund for any Conference registrations that need to be cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m having issues logging on to the site:

Our system identifies people using an individual’s email address and password as a login. If you are a chorus member, each person that serves on your board or staff is eligible to have their own login to our website, and that login is a personal email address. There is often confusion if an organization decides to use an email address that begins with “info@” or “contact@” instead of providing an individual email address.

  • If you have attended a Chorus America event before you probably already have an account in our system.  If you’re unsure which email address your account is under, email Casey Cook
  • If you’ve never setup an account, please go to to create a login using your email address and password.

My chorus is a member of Chorus America, but I’m getting the non-member registration rate:

When your chorus joins Chorus America, we typically receive a listing of board and staff members along with their email addresses. We add this information into our database and you receive membership benefits through your chorus’s membership.

  • If you are a current board or staff member, but not receiving the member price please email Casey Cook to update this information in our database.  
  • If your organization’s membership has lapsed, please email Casey Cook for information on how to renew your membership.

I am a student but I’m getting the member rate

The student registration rate for conference is limited to people with “student memberships.” If you are a student, but receive your membership by being part of a member chorus, you will need to first join Chorus America as a student member.

Do I have to purchase tickets for concerts?

You will need to purchase tickets to Seraphic Fire’s Host Concert on Friday afternoon.  Directions on how to purchase these tickets at a discount will be included in your Conference Registration Confirmation email, once you have registered. Tickets for all the other performances are included in the price of your conference registration. 

Can my spouse/partner come to the concerts?

Unfortunately, due to venue constraints, conference performances are only open to registered conference attendees. Tickets to the Seraphic Fire performance are open to the public and can be found here.

Can I register via the mail, fax, or email?

Yes!  Please download this form, fill it out, and return it in the way that is most convenient for you.
