1 Introduction The Music in Communities Network s research agenda includes filling some statistical gaps in our understanding of the community music sector. We know that there are an enormous number of community-based groups but there is no statistical information about how many people are in them, how often they perform, what music they play, what issues they face, or their demographics. The second in a series of surveys focuses on community choirs. For the first time we have a statistical picture of the demographic and gender makeup of community choirs, how they are supported, some information about budgets and revenue streams, and an indication of the contributions that choirs make to their local community. The survey took place in and has been analysed by Alex Masso, manager of the Music in Communities Network, a program of the Music Council of Australia. The 19 questions (see Appendix 2) cover a range of topics including demographics, leadership, budgets, and repertoire. Key findings: Almost all Australian community choirs sing Australian music (Figure 2) Most Australian community-based choirs have been running for less than 10 years (Figure 3) There is a gradual increase in choir participation with each age bracket, year olds being most likely to sing in a choir (Figure 5) Over 80% of choirs are mixed but only 30% of singers in community choirs are male (Figure 7) Almost two thirds of choir directors/leaders have a degree related to music and most of those have a degree in music education The number of choirs where singers must be able to read music is only 8%, in 57% reading is useful but not required, and in 36% of choirs singers don t need to be able to read music (Figure 10) Almost all community choirs give their time to the local community, with three quarters giving free concerts and even more performing at community events (Figure 12) About a quarter of Australian community choirs have annual expenses of under $1000 (27%), a further 10% have between $1000 and $2500 in their annual budget. Besides the choir director or leader, the highest expenses for community choirs are Venue Hire, Sheet music, Public Liability Insurance and Accompanists (Figure 13) More than half of all community choirs receive some form of support from local government, 13% receive support from state governments and 5% from the federal government (Figure 14) Besides local government, the next highest level of support for choirs comes from churches and religious organisations (Figure 14) Page 1

2 The Survey The Music in Communities Network conducted an online survey between September 2012 and January 2013, open to any choir to complete. Over 200 choirs responded to the survey which was distributed through the Music in Communities Network with the help of the Australian National Choral Association and others. All of the choirs included in these results fall into what we consider community choirs. A small number of school and professional choirs were removed from the responses because there were too few to compare results (for example, between community choirs and school choirs) and because in some cases these results would alter the overall results (for example, directors fees for professional choirs). The survey had 19 questions, listed in Appendix 2 As an indication of the field of responses, the largest categories were Classical (20%), Multicultural (14%), Folk / traditional (13%) and the group of choirs that indicated many or various (16%) (Figure 1). A very small proportion identify as a musical theatre choir, this may be the result of reaching fewer theatre groups than standalone choirs, or may be an indication that musical theatre is one of a number of genres that some choirs sing but not the primary genre. We treat this result with some caution as an indication of the overall breakdown of genres chosen by choirs. Page 2

3 Findings Australian Music Almost all Australian community choirs sing Australian music (Figure 2). Our question was about the place of Australian music in the choir s repertoire, based not on a proportion of repertoire but the effort or priority placed on Australian music. Almost none (0.5%) indicated that it s all we sing, but a third (34%) indicate that they make a conscious effort. A much larger group sings some but doesn t make a conscious effort (58%), bringing the total number of choirs that do sing Australian music to 93%. Participation, Concerts and Rehearsals Based on respondents, Australia s community choirs have an average of 37 members, rehearse 43 times per year and perform an average of 11 concerts per year. Age of Choirs Most Australian community-based choirs have been running for less than 10 years. The highest proportion have been running for less than five years (39%), followed by five to ten years (19%), with fewer choirs as the number of years increases. (Figure 3) One observation here is the comparison with community orchestras, which we have found to show the opposite trend (Figure 3). The majority of orchestras have been running for more than 20 years with a small percentage being created in the last five years, while choirs appear to be more recently established. There are at least two possible explanations for this: one is that there has been a new burst of activity in recent years, to the point where one in three choirs has been running for less than five years. Another possibility Page 3

4 is that choirs naturally come and go more frequently than other kinds of community music group (orchestras, for example), perhaps because that is the nature of the sector or because they are less established and not sustainable. We estimate that there are far more community choirs than orchestras (Appendix 1), it is possible that there are just as many long established choirs as there are orchestras but the high proportion of new choirs includes less established groups. Another observation is that the age of a choir might be determined by the style of choir i. We have found that choirs identifying as classical are far more likely to have been running for over 20 years; in fact half of all respondents that have been running for over thirty years also identified as classical. Pop/contemporary choirs, on the other hand, are far more likely to have been established in the last five years. Page 4

5 Age of Members The most startling observation about the age groups included in choirs is the gradual increase in participation with each increasing age bracket. The highest proportion of participants are in the age category (24%), with a gradual increase from the age category (6%) (9%), (13%) and (21%). In total, almost two thirds of choir members are over 45 (65%) with a very small proportion of people under 25 (Figure 5). Our 2012 survey of community orchestras found that different age groups are represented more consistently, and in more orchestras, than the balance of age groups in community choirs. We treat this with some caution since the surveys were slightly different, but Figure 6 suggests a clear trend. ii While a consistently high number of orchestras include members from each age group, choirs are increasingly more likely to include people from age groups as they increase. This suggests that relatively few people continue group singing after school, many more return to it or commence group singing later in life. Page 5

6 Gender One issue that affects choirs in a different way to other music groups is gender balance. Unlike orchestras, brass bands, jazz bands, rock bands, ukulele groups, pipe bands and so on, the voice is the primary instrument and therefore the combination of voices is a matter of ensemble balance as well as the social makeup of the group. There is a clear gap between the numbers of men and women in community choirs. We estimate that 30% of all singers in community choirs are men, 70% are women. Our research found 81% of choirs being mixed, 6% male only and 13% female only. As Figure 7 shows, the largest group of singers in community choirs are women in mixed choirs (60%) followed by men in mixed choirs (23%), then women and men in gender specific choirs (12% and 5% respectively). The proportion of participation in mixed and gender specific choirs is approximately the same (about 81% of male singers and 80% of female singers are in mixed choirs), although the number of women is much higher. It is also very rare for a mixed choir to have a majority of men; Figure 8 shows that mixed choirs are most likely to have 20-40% male members, somewhat likely to have fewer than 20% male members, but only 4% have over 60% male members. Page 6

7 Choir Leaders Approximately 95% of respondents said that their choir s director or conductor has some form of musical training, with only a small proportion having no musical training (5%). Almost two thirds have a degree related to music (62%) and most of those have a degree in music education (58%). Almost half have a degree in music other than education such as performance (45%) and 7% have a music therapy degree. iii Of those with no formal qualification, nine out of ten have a non-degree education in music. In total, 59% of choir leaders are paid while the remainder take on the role voluntarily. There are a large number in both categories and a wide range of fees for those that are paid, ranging from a modest stipend through to per rehearsal fees and even salaries. Choir leaders with a music degree are twice as likely to be paid for their role as they are to lead a choir voluntarily (67% vs 33%). Choir leaders with no music degree are just as likely to be paid as to take on the role voluntarily (49% vs 51%). Figure 9 shows that a quarter of paid choir directors/conductors receive less than $2500 per year and approximately 16% of directors receive more than $10,000 per year. The largest bracket is between $2500 and $5000. iv It is important to remember that this figure only represents respondents who stated the annual or weekly payment of the director/conductor, and that these figures are for individual choirs. We know that some people run a number of choirs and are paid by each separately, therefore these people will have higher earnings from choral conducting/directing. Page 7

8 Entry to Choir Participation Audition and Reading Skills About one in five choirs audition their members, which means the vast majority have an open door policy. The number of choirs where singers must be able to read music is only 8%, in 57% reading is useful but not required, and in 36% of choirs singers don t need to be able to read music (Figure 10). The auditioned choirs are far more likely to require singers to read music (Figure 10). In a third of all auditioned choirs reading is required in a further 60% it is useful, while in nonauditioned choirs the number where reading is useful is almost the same (56%) but almost half do not require singers to read music (43%). Only 1% of non-auditioned choirs require singers to read music. Participation Fees The vast majority of community choirs involve some fee for participation (79%). These range from an annual membership fee or contribution through to weekly, term-based or activity-based fees. About one in five choirs have no membership or participation fees and a similar number Page 8

9 of choirs fall into the under $100, $100-$250 and $250-$500 categories. Approximately 10% of choirs have participation fees of over $500 per year. (Figure 11) The fee per rehearsal is between $5 and $10 for approximately a third of the choirs with fees, $10 - $15 for a further 17% and 10% pay more than $15 per rehearsal, on average. Approximately 43% have a fee so low that it probably isn t collected or calculated on a weekly or rehearsal basis, these annual fees are under $5 per week on average. Contribution to Community The contributions made by community choirs to their local communities are diverse and significant (Figure 12). Almost all respondents (92%) indicated that they perform some kind of community service, the highest ranking of the options given being performing at community events (87%) followed by free performances (75%). Many other activities were mentioned as ways in which choirs contribute to their community: mentoring generalist teachers in local primary schools, singing for church services, promoting the work of Australian composers, singing at political demonstrations and events, and supporting music students through scholarships. Page 9

10 Finance & Support Overall Budgets About a quarter of Australian community choirs have annual expenses of under $1000 (27%) and a further 10% have between $1000 and $2500 in their annual budget. While the survey does not cover budgets in more detail, these findings suggest that choirs cover a wide spectrum of financial capacity and that a significant number operate with a very small annual budget. Expenses Besides the choir director or leader, the highest expenses for community choirs are Venue Hire, Sheet music, Public Liability Insurance and Accompanists (Figure 13). There are some differences between choirs with very low budgets (27% of choirs with an annual budget under $1000) and those with higher budgets. v More than half of all choirs list sheet music as being one of the highest expenses (54%), even more so among the choirs with less than $1000 in their annual budget (64%). This suggests that the cost of sheet music has a major impact on community choirs. Venue hire is the highest expense overall and particularly for choirs with over $1000 budgets. Page 10

11 Support from Community & Government Institutional support for community choirs comes from a range of sources, with both financial and in-kind support coming from the government, private and community sectors. While 64% of community choirs indicated that they receive some form of financial or in-kind support, only 41% overall indicated that they receive financial support from institutions in their community or government. By far the highest level of support comes from local government, with 35% of choirs receiving financial support and 28% receiving in-kind support, in total 57% of choirs receive some support from their local council (Figure 14). vi The other tiers of government are far less likely to support community choirs, with 13% and 5% receiving some form of support from state or federal government respectively. While almost all community choirs receiving financial support from their local council also perform at civic or community events (93%), only 26% of choirs that perform for community or civic events receive financial support from their local council. Churches are the non-government institutions most likely to support community choirs although this is more likely to be in-kind support such as use of spaces for rehearsals and performances rather than financial support. Businesses, Clubs and Philanthropists follow local government as the most common financial supporters of community choirs (15%, 13% and 13% respectively), although more choirs receive in-kind support from businesses than cash (19% in-kind). Page 11

12 Schools and Arts Organisations are similar to Churches in that they are far more likely to provide in-kind support to community choirs than financial support. While about one in twenty choirs receive in-kind support from an Arts Organisation, almost none receive any financial support from these organisations. Credits Report published 2 December 2013 Survey design: Alex Masso and Tina Broad Report author: Alex Masso The Music in Communities Network is an initiative of the Music Council of Australia Appendix 1: How many choirs are there? The question of how many choirs currently exist in Australia is well beyond the scope and methodology of this project. Anecdotally we know that there are over 1000 members of the Australian National Choral Association (ANCA), many of them are community choirs. vii In 2012 there were 152 Sing Australia groups across Australia. viii There are many choirs that fall into very specific categories, such as the 30 chartered choruses registered with Sweet Adelines Australia ix or that simply operate independently. Without more data we are reluctant to estimate the number of choirs in Australia but it seems likely that there are well over 1000 choirs, there may in fact be several thousand.

If you would like to hear about the findings of this survey and join our mailing list, please provide your address Options: Text box i This comparison should be treated with caution statistically since it has a smaller sample than other results in this study. ii For the Community Orchestras in Australia survey we asked whether the group includes members from each age group; for the Community Choirs in Australia survey we asked how many members of the group fall into each age category. Therefore, in both surveys we asked whether any members fall into each age category but the questions are not identical and should be compared with caution. iii Some people have more than one degree, this total does not equal 100% iv Salary brackets are chosen for the purpose of demonstration; four ranges of $2500 for up to $10000, then two ranges of $5000, then over $20000 v These figures are based on the expenses other than the choir director or leader. vi The total figure for this section is not the sum of cash + in-kind because some choirs receive both kinds of support but are not counted twice. vii Australian National Choral Association (Accessed 20 November 2013) viii Sing Australia (Accessed 20 November 2013) Australia ixix Sweet Adelines Australia (Accessed 20 November 2013) Page 14
