Message from Philip Lawson

From 2012 I will be moving on from The King's Singers to give myself more time for composing and arranging. If you would like to discuss commissioning a piece from me or organising a choral workshop or arranging a seminar, please contact me direct or my US publicist Heather Wilcox Hope to hear from you.

Finding Concerts by Zip Code

One of the great features on ChoralExpress is the Zip Code Finder.  Below is an example of how it works for me here in Minneapolis.  I can query the results by date range and distance to get a nice listing of concerts in my area.

But if you put in your zip code, you may not find any results!  The reason is that choirs in your region have not posted their concerts on the Choral Calendar (yet!).  If you live in a community like mine here in Minneapolis/St. Paul, there are probably a lot of choirs who would like to share their concerts on a common Choral Calendar.  

Please recommend ChoralExpress for your choral community!  It is my hope to have more and more choral communities join ChoralExpress so that users can find their concerts quickly and easily online!
