How do I go about getting new members for my choir, or enticing the existing or previous ones to come back this year?

So, as some of you might remember, I run
. Things have been good, we did our first performance outside of our city last summer, and are planning another mini-tour to Nipissing this winter. But we're now a month into the season, and I am getting lacklustre turnouts to rehearsals. Quite frankly, it's starting to freak me out - we have commitments to meet, and I'm frightened that we won't have the performing forces to meet them.
For those of you who run clubs, associations and community groups, how do you increase membership and encourage existing members to stick around? I admit, the mandate of the choir is somewhat niche, so I'm never going to see enormous numbers, but surely there is a way to encourage retention?
