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.
We find that a lot of people that come to us for solutions on staging equipment work in small spaces. What we mean by small spaces are that they're music directors for a small - medium sized, specific group of people. They lead a choir, band, or other performance group. They may not be conducting a big orchestra with fame and fortune, but they believe in that group of 4th and 5th graders that want to learn all the words to their new choir song.
Being a woman owned business, we love any posts that we see about females succeeding. We came across this great blog post on 4 Ways to Develop Female Worship Leaders. Encouraging women to lead, whether they are the lead vocalist or not, in the way they carry themselves is what Jalessa McCreary has been doing.
Portable staging is the basis for your performances, rehearsals, and events. An important necessity to your equipment in all facets. When looking for staging equipment, consider the sizes, heights, fold and roll advantages, and the surface of the decks.
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 They seem out of date and only needed at special services - like Christmas and Easter.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.
So it's the new fiscal year. New money and a fresh slate on the budget. Take a moment to get excited about the new possibilities instead of the weighing pressure money can have. We can have that discussion later on. But let the excitement of a new year be the beginning of something good.
Have you ever thought of being resourceful with your worship space? Maybe mix things up and create different spaces for your congregation?
