Fabulous supportive resource

As Someone relatively new to the field of community choir leadership, I have found this podcast to be a terrific resource and a very entertaining one at that. The podcast is excellent and covers a wide range of topics and both women who run it are available to answer questions and offer suggestions, as are other participants on the total choir resources Facebook page. I highly recommend this to anyone working in or interested in any facet of choir leadership.
