Music Rental


Singing City maintains a large inventory of classical choral music (over 800 works). We charge NO annual membership fee – you pay just for the music you rent. You pay shipping in both directions (UPS, FedEx or USPS). Rentals are normally for six-eight weeks, but we can accommodate your situation. Return dates are negotiated. We also rent music for one-day readings, such as open sings. Inquire about specifics, but most pieces rent in the range of $1.00-$2.00. Larger works will be somewhat higher.

Choral singing is a natural, spontaneous medium for building understanding among people,and Singing City must take and

make every opportunity to do so. To this purpose I must
dedicate whatever talents I have and all of my energy.
