Stringing Along

Stringing Choral Folders: “First, take the metal tip of the string and loop it under the claw…” If you have to string choral folders to securely hold your music, you’ll want to watch this video!

Some choral folders are sold with an accompanying bundle of strings that can leave you thinking, “If I can lace shoes then I can string a folder, right?” Well, after years of answering customer questions about stringing choir folders, I thought a how-to video may help. And just so you know, the first time I tried to string a choral folder, the metal tabs were sticking out in odd ways, waiting to catch on my clothing. I instantly felt like that kid trying to learn to tie my shoes.


Once strung, the folders are a great cure for the “spilled folder” effect or the “dig and find” recovery method stringless folders can cause. The center strings secure octavos and allow you to neatly organize pieces you are currently working on. The additional storage pockets work well to hold additional pieces that you may want to carry. I know I sound like an advertisement, but hey, I work in the advertising department, so why not?

I hope you enjoy the video, and I wish you many happy concerts!
