Frequently Asked Questions
Our most common answers to our most common questions about Virtual Choirs.
What is a Virtual Choir?
The Virtual Choir is a global phenomenon, with singers coming together from across town or from around the world to create a user-generated choral experience. Singers record and upload their individual videos. Those videos are then synchronized and combined into one single performance to create the Virtual Choir.
Do I need a license to make a Virtual Choir Video?
Yes. In fact you need a few.
To make the video, you need to have:
- a Synchronization License for each singer who is participating, as well as a license for the finished video.
- You also need an Adaptation License
- and a Video Streaming license.
Unfortunately, it’s that complicated.
That’s why we created this site, to offer a Virtual Choir Bundled License so you, the director, only had to purchase one agreement to get moving on your Virtual Choir video. One Bundled License is always better than dozens of individual licenses.
How much does a Virtual Choir Bundled License cost?
The cost of the Virtual Choir Bundled License is $89.99. There is an additional $10.00 Processing Fee. So your total for the Bundled License is $99.99.
Does the Virtual Choir Bundled License work for larger works, such as Requiem for The Living or Jubilate Deo?
No, the Virtual Choir Bundled License is only for stand-alone octavos. If you are wanting to do a multi-movement work in one of our catalogs, you’ll need to contact us by email and we will give you a custom quote for that project.
How long does my Virtual Choir Bundled License last?
You have one year from the date of your Bundled License to complete and upload your Virtual Choir video. That video will remain on our VirtualChoirHQ.com YouTube page in perpetuity. You’ll have access to it forever.

What happens to our Virtual Choir Video after we’ve made it?
Once you’ve completed your Virtual Choir video, you will need to upload it to our servers via the “Video Upload Portal” option on our homepage - VirtualChoirHQ.com. From there, we will process that we’ve received it and upload it to our YouTube page. You will be sent a link so you can either make it available on your choir’s website or social media accounts. You can also share the link with your singers, supporters, parents, and friends. That video will remain on our YouTube channel in perpetuity. You will always have access to it.
Can we link the video to our church/school/choir website?
You bet! We encourage you to have all of your singers and supporters and friends share the link through social media or directly through emails. We want everyone to have access to your video from wherever they are in the world. It’s a great way to expand the reach of your choir.
