Choirs bring people together through musical expression, shared passion and the joy of performing among friends. 

And for you as the choir leader, it’s an incredible opportunity to create something bigger than the sum of its parts. 

Despite the joys of choir, many choir managers are often stressed and desperate for more time to complete all the tasks they have to do to keep things running smoothly.

There are emails to be sent, events to be organized and member dues to be collected. With so much to do, there’s no time left to focus on the main reason the choir comes together — the music. 

If this sounds like you, it may be time to switch to choir management software. It will automate your administrative tasks and replace the need for numerous tools with an all-in-one solution.

What is Choir Management Software?

 

Choir management software brings all of your tools into one place and seamlessly integrates your tasks to save you hours and hours of tedious administrative work. 

If you’re currently using a combination of spreadsheets, a website builder, MailChimp, PayPal, or other tools, choir management software will replace all of these with one simple dashboard where you can manage all of your tasks. 

Choir management software will typically offer a website builder, contact database, member directory, email system, payment system, event management platform and much more. 

With this software, you’ll be able to: 

 

  • Easily create your choir’s website with templates and drag-and-drop widgets (no coding experience required!) 

  • Create and promote events like rehearsals and concerts, allow visitors to register online, track attendance and process payments. 

  • Automate member registrations, renewals and payments

  • Maintain a database of member records, including choir members, section leaders, artistic staff, volunteers and board members 

  • Send engaging emails and newsletters directly to your segmented contact lists 

  • Allow members to login to your website to update their information, look through the online directory, participate in forums and much more

The above functionalities are the basic features of software tools called Membership Management Software. The #1 rated membership management software is Wild Apricot and it is used by many choirs because of how easily it integrates with the day-to-day activities of choir managers.
