Synchronization Licensing

Before posting a choir video online –  Youtube or Vimeo etc., or Live-Streaming a choir performance (including church services), choirs need to write publishers for a synchronization license – because of copyright matters. If you’ve posted a video prematurely, it’s not too late to make amends.

Cypress Choral Music offers TWO OPTIONS – depending on the format of presentation:

Option #1

If the virtual video is a compilation/collage of individual singers – faces in boxes (as in the banner above) – the fee is $50.

Option #2

If the choir is singing together as a group – performing in one location (as in this covid era photo) – the nominal fee is $35. This would include school concerts, church services, streaming a concert, etc.

Make your request known to us and we will send you a PayPal request.
Your payment will be followed by a simple letter of permission from Cypress.

Q: What if our choir wants to post a video with photos and artwork – with our choir singing as the soundtrack?
A: Option #2 would apply.
Q: May we embed the video on our choir website?
A: Yes, please do.
Q: How long may we keep the video online?
