Legally performing borrowed music
Date: December 5, 2011
What is the legality of a performance of borrowed music, if for use in a community chorus (501c).
Some of the people in my organization feel that because we are a community chorus, we cannot perform music that we legally borrow, because we are not an educational or church affiliated group.
Specifically, I want to know if the college where I teach (which owns copies of Testament of Freedom) can loan those copies to the community chorus I direct (non-profit, ticketed, sponsors, etc, etc). Is the community chorus performance legal.
