MILWAUKEE—For the past year, choir directors have been challenged with keeping their choirs singing together in any way possible. Hal Leonard and Shawnee Press have just released a series of Virtual Choir Toolkits that make directors’ tasks a little easier. Each kit includes downloadable demonstration, accompaniment, and part-dominant recordings along with licensing permissions needed to legally share their recorded performances online.
In addition to the printed octavos, these recordings are necessary for each singer to be able to practice then record their parts to submit to the director who will then be able to compile all the individual recordings into one video. All recordings are accessed online within Hal Leonard’s MyLibrary by using the codes the director receives upon purchasing the Toolkits.
The kit includes a license to record and create videos, and stream and post them for one full year after purchase.
The series is launching with twelve titles appropriate for worship throughout the year: All Creatures, Sing Praise; Change the World with Love; Every Valley Needs a Lily; How Can I Keep from Singing; Raise Your Hands; Until We Sing Again, and more, from composers and arrangers Joseph Martin, Brad Nix, Stacey Nordmeyer, Adam, and Matt Podd, John Purifoy, Heather Sorenson, and more. More titles will be added throughout the year.
Virtual Choir Digital Toolkits retail for $59.99 each. All titles are available for purchase at halleonard.com and can be seen here.
