The code of ethics for conductors and singers



The organization of choirs and choirs Milah unites singers, who sing in choirs and choirs and conductors.

Naturally, the organization undertakes to answer questions and problems (or disagreements) that arise mainly in the musical field.

The professional and in the field of the relationship between the winners and themselves and between the groups and themselves.

The singers are united in the choirs, but each singer is a unit in itself, who on the one hand strives to fulfill his desires

The personal musical and on the other hand is part of a group, which is committed to helping fulfill the group's ambitions.

The conductors, in addition to their role as the group's musical directors, are also involved in the administrative management.

And in the social affairs of the group.

This situation means that in many cases there is confusion between the responsibilities of the various participants  In the system

(Conductors, band managers, singers, accompanying musicians). This document defines the responsibilities of each of the human components,

The interaction between them as well as the interaction between the winners and themselves and between the groups and themselves in a way,

That everyone will know and Japanese their place in this complex system for the benefit of all participants.

The document below does not serve as a set of rules and does not supersede signed employment agreements between winners and gangs.

The agreements are legal documents while this document defines basic rules of conduct between singers / conductors / group managers /

Employers on controversial issues. The intent of this document is only to cause even in cases of bruised disputes

You will be able to continue with regular activities.

Milah will appoint a standing committee on ethics to be composed, by the Executive Committee, of three to five members, including at least

One conductor, one band leader and singers' representatives. The committee will also be attended by non-stakeholders (former conductors, composers, arranger,

Public figures not involved in the daily life of the choir activity).

Definitions  Musical conductor / director

The conductor / musical director is responsible for the group's repertoire (sometimes in consultation with a musical committee from within the group),

Responsible for bringing the musical materials and managing the rehearsals and performances.  The conductor is the supreme authority when it comes to musical matters! 

The conductor determines and conducts entrance exams (and sometimes periodic exams) for singers and has the authority to accept or suspend singers from the group,

When it comes to musical and professional reasons. Winners will be able to attach  3-2  Experienced and knowledgeable choir members help him pass the test.

This is especially recommended so that a singer who has been removed from the band, or has not been accepted into it, will not get the impression that it was done because of the whim of the conductor.

  Group Manager / Group Committee *

The director / committee of the group deals with the administrative management of the group, taking care of the venue for rehearsals, appropriate physical conditions, refreshments during breaks,

Shuttles to gigs and all the extra administration involved in running the band.

When the group is a private organization of the singers, it also takes care of collecting the participation money as well as paying the salary to the conductor and / or the accompanist.

When the group belongs to a public body (municipality / community center / school, etc.), the group director deals with current affairs as well as dealing with

Bodies that invite the group to performances.


* All vehicles will have the director of the vehicle and / or the composition committee in order for there to be a healthy division of powers between the role of the conductor, the director and the composition committee
