Recent choir related research has different points of departure. One point of departure involves theory and methodology developed in cultural and social sciences. Another includes historical musicology. With choir as an overarching umbrella concept, the network Choir in Focus provides the scope for cooperation across national and disciplinary borders. This includes cooperation between the traditional musicological discipline based in humanities and practice-based artistic research in the area of music performance and social science oriented research in music education. The development of joint approaches through combinations of theory, research traditions and methodology from differing traditions constitutes a scientific challenge.
