10 crucial things to keep in mind when setting up a choir:

  1. Goals: Define clear goals for the singing group. Is it for entertainment purposes only, or do you want to use it for team building and employee engagement?
  2. Time and Schedule: Consider scheduling choir rehearsals at a time that is convenient for all members. Will rehearsals be during lunch breaks or after work? What about the choir’s performances?
  3. Skill Level: Determine the skill level required to join, and make sure that everyone is aware of the expectations. Do you want a choir that includes only experienced singers, or is it open to everyone regardless of their singing abilities?
  4. Music Selection: Choose music that everyone will enjoy and is appropriate for the group’s skill level. Consider allowing members to suggest songs that they would like to perform.
  5. Accompaniment: Decide whether the choir will be accompanied by live musicians, recorded music, or acapella.
  6. Performance Opportunities: Plan opportunities for the choir to perform, such as at company events or charity functions.
  7. Attire: Consider whether you want the choir to wear matching outfits or something more casual.
  8. Recruitment: Advertise the choir to employees, and encourage participation from all departments.
  9. Leadership: Appoint a director for the group or conductor to oversee rehearsals and performances.
  10. Budget: Consider the cost of hiring a director, purchasing music, and any other associated costs.
