Exchange
The Vocal Area Network Info Exchange is the place to, well, exchange information. If you're a group looking for singers, or a singer looking for a group, or if you have services or opportunities to offer the vocal ensemble community, (via e-mail) with your information and we'll post it here.

There is no charge to have your text ad posted in the Info Exchange. Please include contact information (phone, e-mail, web) and an "expiration date" (if appropriate) for your posting. Vocal Area Network reserves the right to adjust expiration dates for ads. Unless requested otherwise, ads typically run for two months. Vocal Area Network reserves the right to edit ads for length and content (though our editing is done very gently). To supplement your text ad with a graphic VAN Ad banner ad, see our Advertising page.

See also the Choir Auditions page for ongoing audition ads from choirs.

Info Exchange ads now come in two categories: ads targeted to singers (denoted by a green border and background) and ads for services and opportunities (denoted by a gold border and background). By unclicking the checkboxes below, you can filter out an entire category of ads.
