How much physical space does your parish devote to its music program?
My parish doesn't have a choir "loft" but we do have three alcoves in the "back" walls of our Church where the seats are on built in risers. They are all designed for choirs but only one is actually used that purpose; the others are used as seating for parishioners. The middle (and largest) section used by the choir is designed to accommodate about 80 singers. The floor in front of this section has an organ, piano, and room to seat other musicians who play flute, cello, etc. There are cabinets built into the wall behind the singers where sound equipment and a few boxes of music can be stored.
In addition to the space in the the Church the Music/worship director has an office next to all the other parish offices. We have several meeting rooms and one of them is where the choirs practice. It has a piano, several built in cabinets and several rolling file cabinets for storing our choir music. There never seems to be enough room for all the choir music. We keep having to find new spaces to put it.
We'd love to have a practice room right near where the choir sits so we wouldn't have to warm up in the church before Mass. (The multipurpose room we use during the week isn't available on Sunday mornings.) But that's probably years away from happening.
So what kind of space/equipment does your parish have for music?
