Wenger Nota Chairs

Does anybody have any experience with the Nota chairs from Wenger?  I was going to buy the standard student chairs for my choir room, but if the Nota chairs are as great as Wenger says they are, I will get those instead.

Oh, goodness .... if you have the budgetary resources to get the Wenger Nota chairs, do so. The improvement in posture sitting in the Wenger choirs is night and day different from a regular student chair. The student Nota chair has a bit of 'bounce' to it, allowing for somewhat more release of student energy. It also does not have chair legs in front that always tempt students to slouch forward and put the heel of their shoes on the chair legs; students' feet have to stay down on the floor almost by default.

Oh I didn't mean the Nota "conBRIO" chairs without the front legs, but the Nota standard chairs (they are having a promotional sale right now).  I can see how the 'bounce' and the different chair legs on the 'conBRIO' would help the singers' musicianship - the standard ones have the standard 4-leg design.

We purchased these chairs for our entire music department back in the Fall. They are the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in to sing! All of the adults around our school agree. Kids being Kids (middle schoolers), still try to slouch in these chairs and then complain that they are uncomfortable. But if you sit up against the back of it like you are supposed to, the lumbar support is amazing and it really opens you up to breathe properly. I highly recommend them!

I highly recommend these. The band director and I decided on these chairs for our high school music department and no one has had a complaint. The kids have serious trouble slouching in them at all and it forces good posture, but in a comfortable way. My experience has been that it is most comfortable to sit with superb posture than it is to force yourself to slouch in them. It's great!
