Universal Rules of Choirs

I’ve been in only a few, but I feel like there are ought to be some universals to choirs. I’d like to know what you think, however true or funny.

In my experience, the second soprano section is always lacking. I just about carried it in my high school chorus. I don’t know if it’s that they don’t want to sing out or they just aren’t strong enough, but it seems like the director is stopping because he/she can’t hear them.

Sure, this might turn into a “What’s the first thing a soprano does when she wakes up? Goes home!” thread, but I’m curious to see what other people think. Heck, even make it about the conductor. Go nuts!

Altos love Basses and Basses love Altos. Tenors love other Tenors and Sopranos love an audience.

I thought everybody knew this.

Choir jokes. Go nuts. :slight_smile:
