What is Partner Choir Mixing?

Mix your performance with another choir’s performance to form a greater choral reef, with a brilliant message. You can choose your Partner Choir or have one with a similar (or contrasting!) message chosen for you. Mixing is created through the addition of tracks on a DAW (digital audio workstation).*
 
*Certain parameters are determined by the composer to allow for “Choral Reef” effects in the Individual performances as well as the Partner Mix performances

Donations to Coral Restoration Foundation

For every choir that participates in Options that include Skype sessions, I will be making a donation to Coral Reef Foundation to support their work restoring and protecting our coral reefs. Learn more about the important work of Coral Restoration Foundation HERE.
