Question about Gospel Choir Seating Arrangement
« on: November 14, 2006, 01:58:47 PM »
Ok I have a quick question.  I am working with a choir that is not really musically trained.  However, I am trying to musically train them and get to the point where we can sing in parts.  We have about 8 members and I am wondering about how they should be seated for singing.  Our choir stand has three rows of 5 chairs and people just kinda sit where they have been sitting for years.

I know that the typical arrangement of a choir would have altos on the left, tenors in the middle, and soproanos on the right, but I am a little stuck on how to work this one out.  Please advise!

Keep it the way it is.  Tenors are best left in the middle.  Altos and sopranos have a hard time singing next o each other, especially when theay are not good singers.  Also put the best singers in the middle.
