Disclaimer: This is my own personal list based on my movie knowledge, even with my experience in the independent movie genre. The more well-known choir scenes and clips you'll find will definitely make this list. However, there will be a few scenes that could surprise you, adding a new tv series/movie to your long list of things you should check out, but haven't yet.
You're probably wondering what the dimensions of different choir risers are. After all, you need to make sure that your performers fit on the equipment as your number one priority. We agree that it's the first step when purchasing a set. To help out, we have multiple kinds of choir risers, so let me break down the dimensions and options for each.
I was always a good student. I went to class and listened to the teacher. I even helped other students that needed help grasping the quadratic formula - math was my best subject. However, not all students have that same mindset. Most students want to know the why behind what they're learning and why they have to sit through a teacher explaining something they're "never going to use". We've all heard that before, or even thought it ourselves in our work seminars.
We recently put together an infographic for purchasing show choir risers.
It’s our lightweight choral riser that is cost effective. No tools, transport dollies, or extra hands are needed. Just roll it to the event location and unfold it. While the Fold and Roll Riser is in the transport position, the low profile provides better visibility over the top and its low center of gravity helps prevent tripping. Nylon bushings at pivot points keep the decks aligned, level, and safe throughout the life of the riser. The cantilever folding mechanism aids in lifting, so very little weight is actually lifted, minimizing the risk of back strain.
It's about time to pick your Christmas Music Performance theme and setup for your production. We're at the start of the holiday season as we fly past Halloween and move into Thanksgiving. You're either in two camps right now. The planner who decided their Christmas show weeks ago. The last minute person who could use some ideas to get the ideas flowing, but really won't work on the logistics until the last possible hour.
I've been listening to other's talking about why community is important. We were meant to be together to not feel as alone in life. It might be a little weird to some to experience choirs. They seem out of date and only needed at special services - like Christmas and Easter. However, that feeling you get around Christmas where you feel connected to family and friends, and even the world as a whole, is the same feeling that community has on a person.
In researching choral concert series for you all to attend, I was wondering what it took to put on your own choral concert series in the summer. NPR has this great article on "Eight Things You Need to Know Before You Start a Music Festival". These three stood out to me:
- Do Your Homework
- Get Some Help
- Learn To Let Go
