I recently read the posting by Life-of-Rubin regarding pre recorded music and vocals being used at various boys choir shows such as Yeshiva Boys Choir which was extensively reseached by the Cool Jew. It's a very insightful post and if you have not read I suggest you do by clicking here. It's interesting to see how different choirs handle this issue differently with some using pre recorded vocals and others only the music and some others perhaps both. As Nachman Seltzer of Shira Chadasha Boys Choir mentioned, I too sang with MBC as a soloist many moons ago and I had to sing and dance without any pre recorded assistance. From a consumer's perspective, perhaps it all comes down to what matteres to you. In that sense I'm a purist: If I'm paying good money to see a performance, I want the music and vocals to be real and live. One could argue if a choir can't handle dancing and singing at the same time, perhaps they should dance without vocals or not at all. I certainly understand the entertainment value of having pre recorded music it's simply a question of what matters to you.... or is it?
