FAQ for Composers
Q: What if I want to display my music in the Composition Showcase?
A: Join our community. Follow the instructions, it is not an easy process at the present time.
Q: Why can I only upload only 6 pieces?
A: The idea of the Composition Showcase is to give conductors a taste of the best works we have to offer. By limiting each composer to 6 we ensure the quality of the experience for the user.
Q: Why can I only upload 3 pieces of the same voices?
A: The original idea was to allow only 3 pieces from each composer. It became clear that the showcase would include music for mixed choir almost exclusively. The 3 in one voicing and 6 total upload limits encourage composers to upload treble and men's choir repertoire in addition to mixed choir repertoire.
Q: Why can't I upload a file to the library?
A: You must be a member of our community and have been made an editor.
Q: I am an editor but still can't find the "New Library File" button. Why not?
A: Refresh the page in your browser. Click after the URL and then hit return/enter. If that still doesn't work, waut a few minutes and try again.
Q: ChoralNet seems to have jammed. I was entering information and the submit button says "submitting..." You probably hit the back button to come to a screen where you have already entered data. Try closing that window and coming back to it again.
Q: What if I feel my copyrights are being infringed upon?
A: Contact the Owner/Editor of this community and a remedy will be sought.
Q: Who is responsible for copyrighted materials uploaded to the Composition Showcase?
