What this website will do
Once fully functional, www.bahaichoir.com will serve three main purposes:
1. To provide information, announcements and news about Bahá'í Choirs around the globe.
2. To act as a database and repository of Bahá'í Choral music. The database will incorporate high quality sheet music (PDFs) and rehearsal-tracks with each part sung separately (mp3s). Musical directors will be able to browse the database and chose appropriate repertoire for their choir. Choir members will be able to listen and download the practice files selected for their choir. Composers and copyright holders can submit their works to the database and may choose to charge choirs a fee for using their music.
3. To give Bahá'í choirs the possibility of hosting their own website, see below for details.
Opportunity for web developers
The fist two of the three points listed above still require implementation. Web developers with experience in content management systems are invited to get in touch to create this. We already have over 50 songs and associated mp3 files that can be added. To ask for more information and to send us a quote, please e-mail:

Free webhosting and .bahaichoir.com subdomain
We are offering your Bahá'í Choir the possibility to host your website, or just a page with contact details, on our server, with a .bahaichoir.com subdomain. For example, if your choir called the Mytown Bahá'í Choir, then your website would be www.mytown.bahaichoir.com.
Please contact us if you are interested:
