Applying for Non-profit status in Arizona

I am applying for 501(c)3 status for my choir and I'm confused about something. I know most community choruses are 501(c)3's so here's my  question:
What "heading/purpose" do we fall under exactly? By process of elimination I've whittled it down to Charitable and/or Educational. (I was originally thinking it might be for "The Prevention of Cruelty to Children" but from what I've heard about how some choirs are run I don't think that can be it.)
Does anyone have experience with this? If so, can you help me understand how you answered when you applied and how you justified that distinction. If we're Charitable, who are we giving to? If we're Educational, who and how are we educating? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
Jack W.
