Choir chairs

I know this topic has been around the block in the last several years, but wondering what kind of choir chairs you would recommend.  Middle schoolers through adult singers will be using them.  Rob

It will depend a little on the place (classroom, church loft, etc.), but in looking for something both sturdy and comfortable, with good support (many older members), we ended up going with a Church furnishings outlet, and got simple wooden (laminated) chairs, with minimal but sufficent padding and an optional music/hymnbook shelf underneath. They are stackable, and I suppose if they were moved and stacked frequently they would begin to show wear, but so far they still look elegant, and feel great.

For my church's choir room we got Wenger student chairs, and people seem to like them just fine.

What I like about Wenger chairs is that they are designed to encourage good breathing/singing posture while sitting.  That might not be said of other brands you might try.  I'd suggest you try out whatever chair you're considering to see how well it encourages good posture while just sitting in it, without leaning forward from the back of the chair.
