POPUP CHORUS: JUST POP UP AND SING
ARTS NOW NC
The point is to experience singing together in a room — and often getting over some anxiety about singing — or to come back to singing after years away. We see a lot of people reuniting with their love of singing, and all DIGGING the experience of singing together. The chorus received rave reviews from artists like David Bowie, Zooey Deschanel and others for the versions of their songs we performed. What a crazy thrill for Durham-based singers!

PAPA SURF TUMBLR
Ever since I started going to PopUp Chorus on Mondays at Motorco in Durham, NC, I’ve been suffused with almost-overwhelming feelings of joy and community. “A sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused,” as Wordsworth might have it.
The “PopUp Chorus” is a chance for anyone to be a part of a musical chorus, with no commitment and no auditions.
