Chorus Connection

Chorus Connection is an on-line cloud-based website providing one-stop solution for choruses. By logging into choruses’ accounts on the website through PC or mobile, choruses can manage rehearsals, performances, music scores, attendance rates, and even internal communications with members, etc. Chorus Connection charges a fee under a variety of subscription plans. These subscription fees are charged to the chorus, not the individual users associated with the Chorus.
