It’s estimated that the number of choirs in the UK alone has risen to over 40,000 in recent years. A large proportion of those have been formed purely to share the enjoyment of singing – and perhaps performing – music within a local community, workplace or other environment.
One of the challenges faced by the growing number of choirs is finding a good source of quality music to work with which is both accessible and enjoyable for everyone to sing.
It was this challenge that inspired the idea for ChoirCommunity some 18 months ago. In this first part of a short series about our story so far, let’s go back to the beginning…
Three weeks after our launch, I thought it would be interesting to see which arrangements are proving most popular.
So I had a look through the records for each of our founding arrangers to see which of their contributions are getting most attention.
And there are some interesting titles in the list.
ChoirCommunity is live!
We’re delighted that after many months of planning and hard work, the website is now live complete with an initial catalogue of 45 arrangements.
Each of them is available to buy as either sheet music or MP3 learning tracks.
Even more exciting were the orders that arrived within minutes of the site going live.
