The Visual Team lead on the costume and make-up choices for the chorus, deciding on which outfits and what type of make-up will be worn at each singout. They are also responsible for planning and sourcing new costume and other items of chorus clothing like t-shirts and fleeces and jewellery. They ensure that new members have the costume they need and provide guidance and tutorials on applying stage make-up etc.
The Performance Organiser, following discussions with the Musical Director, arranges all singouts for the Chorus, including the fee. They then give lists of forthcoming events to the Chorus, liaising with the Visual Team so the costume details can be decided. They also arrange transport for the risers to singouts that require them.
