New choir ‘popping up’

Follow CV Pop-Up Choir on Facebook

Local choir directors, Wendy Nixon Stothert and Jenn Forsland, are launching a new experience: CV Pop-Up Choir!

Pop-Up Choir is a night of shameless indulgence in group pop-singing. Nixon Stothert and Forsland will announce a date, location, and song at least a week in advance, but the first meeting is Tuesday, Aug. 25 from 7-9 p.m.

Location will be announced on social media. Future meetings will be randomly timed.

Everyone is welcome to come and sing!  The format is drop-in ($10).

One pop song from the 1960s to present day will be selected and arranged for high, medium, and low voices. No solos, auditions, weekly commitment, music reading, or experience necessary.

Over the course of the evening, participants will be taught to master the song and the harmonies. The cherry on top will be adding instruments and a video of the performance will be posted on social media for participants to share with their friends and family.

To find out the location and the song, follow CV Pop-Up Choir on Facebook or send an email to cvpopupchoir@gmail.com.
