PopUp Chorus means business with these three epic songs, all from 1983, and all sung by women! Come be a part of this 80’s party and feel the joy, fun, and connection of singing together. Think you are a bad singer? Forget about it – we welcome everybody at PopUp Chorus!

New to PopUp Chorus? Want to know more? Is it for you?

Do you like to sing? Do you sing in the shower, in your car, or along to the radio? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you belong in PopUp Chorus!

PopUp Chorus is the only chorus where you can show up when you want and skip it when you’re too busy. No audition, no ongoing commitment. Just show up and sing with an ad hoc bunch of other lovely, excellent people. Together, we form a chorus and are never the same group twice.

At each event, singers arrive and “learn” two or three pre-announced familiar songs, guided by our funny, skilled and encouraging conductor, Allan Friedman. When each song is ready (we embrace imperfection!) we do a final sing-through performance and applaud ourselves heartily! It’s simple and could not be more fun.

Find out more about our events by joining our mailing list, following us on Twitter, or join our Facebook group. Check out our WEBSITE to learn more and see our past videos: http://popupchorus.org/

Admission: $15 for adults and $8 for students (ticket fee and tax are additional). Student tickets must be purchased in person at the Box Office with appropriate ID. Drinks available from the bar. Free parking in the multi-story parking deck adjacent to The ArtsCenter.
