Most choir members will be most willing to help you, so I see nothing wrong with asking for cues.  It will be interesting, though, to see what someone blind says about this.

The orchestra conductor is going to be giving the choir cues that are not in the music such as cut-offs.  I am totally blind so I can't see when the conductor is making a gesture to tell us something.  I don't want to call attention to the fact that I am blind, but at the same time, I don't want to stick out because I am still holding a note or not coming in when the other choir members are already singing.  What can I do about this, is it ok to ask a fellow choir member to give me a secret signal during the concert and give me a cue when to stand up or sit down or do I just need to listen to the other choir members for cues?
