Legal queries

I'm looking for advice on some legal matters - 1) How do other choirs deal with insurance when they are performing away from regular rehearsal premises?  2) If we involve an unpaid children's choir in performances in licensed premises, are we expected to complete paperwork for safeguarding, chaperoning etc? 

Website design

Is anyone able to recommend a web design company they’ve used to set up a website for their choir(s) please? Not sure where to begin but I know I’d like areas for members to be able to download rehearsal tracks. I’ve looked at ‘design your own website’ sites but I’m just not clever enough to do it myself.

Thank you in advance. 

Locked sign

Hello, I don't seem to be able to access any of the warm-ups, rounds etc. There is a locked sign next to each of them. I am a member but am I missing something?

any suggestions for improving tuning (a cappella) when changing key to a semitone higher during a song? There is a link bar and individually each part can do the transition, but when layering up it still seems to drift sometimes.

Sharing Resources and Repertoire Ideas

Today is the first day I've had the time to explore the new site and I've found it very slick.  

I'd welcome an area where members could share their recommendations for songs which have worked particularly well (organised by parts eg SSA) or even a place where members could upload their own arrangements of songs which are out of copyright for other members to use.  

Please give this some consideration.  Many thanks.

Licencing minefield

Hello.  

I really want to do things right and am struggling to get my head around all the licencing requirements for singing in different venues in the UK.  Perhaps if I list what I know, someone may be able to confirm that it is correct?

If we sing in a church and the church has a CCLI Licence, we are covered regardless of what we sing?

If we sing in a shopping centre, it is the responsibility of the shopping centre to contact PPL / PRS to inform them of the event?

If we sing outside, at an unti…

Hello.  

I really want to do things right and am struggling to get my head around all the licencing requirements for singing in different venues in the UK.  Perhaps if I list what I know, someone may be able to confirm that it is correct?

If we sing in a shopping centre, it is the responsibility of the shopping centre to contact PPL / PRS to inform them of the event?

If we sing outside, at an unticketed event, we would need to obtain a licence ourselves from PPL / PRS?

It all seems quite complicated.

I'm also wondering what sort of licence we would need to be able to record and distribute rehearsal tracks legally?  or record the concerts?

I'd be very grateful for any advice, clarification or information you may have.  I'm feeling a bit bogged down.

Thank you

We hope that’s all clear but if you have any questions just let us know by hopping onto the site and opening a support ticket.
