Parameters explained

Parameter Explanation
name Name (defaults to page name)
image Insert image name. Use only the file name such as abc.jpg, xyz.png, 123.gif, etc. Do not use syntax such as [[File:abc.jpg]] or [[File:abc.jpg|200px]]
image_size This parameter should only be used if it is necessary to overrule viewers' default thumb size preferences.
caption Insert a caption for the image. If known, try to include the location and date of photo.
origin Home performance location of choir. For "United States" and "United Kingdom", it is preferred that they be abbreviated "U.S." and "UK", but political subdivisions should never be (never "MA" for "Massachusetts", "ON" for "Ontario", etc.). See Notes[1] for location details.
founding Date choir started performing; use {{Start date}} if after 1583.
disbanding Date choir disbanded; use {{End date}} if after 1583.
genre Music genre
members Number of members in choir
music director Name of music director
awards Insert any other awards won. Use the same format as academyawards.
label Insert the record labels the choir was signed to.
website Insert the choir's official website.


  1. As per RfC "Naming countries in infoboxes": When identifying a location, city or region in the United States or United Kingdom, the preferred approach is to use the country abbreviations allowed by MOS:ACRO, such as "Portsmouth, New Hampshire, U.S." and "Cardiff, Wales, UK", rather than spelling out the full country name. Avoid using abbreviations for states or provinces in all nations. New Hampshire rather than NH, New South Wales rather than NSW, or British Columbia rather than BC (see MOS:POSTABBR). Cities such as New York City and London may be rendered as "New York City, U.S." and "London, UK" or simply "New York City" and "London". Also, these should not be linked when the context makes it clear (see MOS:OVERLINK). If only the country name is included, it may be written out in full.
