Three Rules for Writing a Great Chorus
There are many opinions about what makes a great chorus. Let’s explore this.
In a recent monthly meeting everyone was asked to take a piece of paper and write down three things they thought makes a chorus great. Each person did that. Everyone shared what they wrote down. All the items were collected and then shown on the screen so the whole group could see the entire list of items. Each person was then asked to review the list and pick two items from the list, they felt was most important. Each person’s top pick was given a score of 2, and their second pick was given a score of 1. The votes were all tallied up, and the results were interesting.
Why don’t you try it. Take a piece of paper and write down three things that you think make a great chorus. Keep the answers short and simple (two or three words). There is no right or wrong answer.
Once you have them. Click here and you will see the list generated by the group at the meeting.
