With a few months of fall behind us, and the holidays and planning for spring ahead, it feels like a good time to check in. We're hearing from many of you with questions about how choruses like yours are operating at this point in the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Fall 2020 Chorus Survey and Member Forums are designed to help answer these questions and inform your future planning.
Chorus America will be hosting a series of Fall Member Forums on November 17-19. These discussions are an opportunity to connect with colleagues in similar situations and compare notes on plans for the spring, operations during COVID, and bright spots or innovations that are helping you manage this challenging time. The results of our Fall 2020 Chorus Survey (see below) will be available to inform your conversations.
Children/Youth Choruses: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 | 1:00-2:00pm ET
Professional Choruses: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 | 4:00-5:00pm ET
Volunteer Choruses: Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 4:00-5:00pm ET; Thursday, November 19, 2020 | 4:00-5:00pm ET
These peer-to-peer discussions will be organized by type of chorus and budget size. Click here to sign up! Please note: you need to be a Chorus America member and be signed into your site user account to access the sign up form.

Fall 2020 Chorus Survey
The Fall 2020 Chorus Survey collects data on the impact that COVID-19 continues to have on the choral field and how choruses are currently handling rehearsals and performances, planning for the spring, singer engagement, and more. The survey is open to all choruses in the U.S. and Canada, whether Chorus America members or not. We will share general results publicly, with more detailed responses available to Chorus America members and all survey participants. Results will be ready to share in mid-November.
