Member News

Our Member News feed spreads the word about what’s happening in the choral field. We encourage our members to post about premieres and commissions, awards and grants received, staff/board appointments, creative programming initiatives, recording and book releases, anniversaries, and any other notable items.

Be sure to highlight your news! In addition to this visibility on our website, Chorus America staff often pulls items from our Member News feed to share in the Voice and through our social media channels.

To post a news item, you must be logged in as a Chorus America member (or derive membership benefits from association with a member chorus). Not yet a member? Join now!

Note: Season concert listings and audition notices should be posted to our Calendar, and Job postings should be posted to our Jobs page (neither requires membership for submission). Please refrain from duplicate postings in Member News. Generally, posts will be reviewed within one business day.
