Pop-Up Choir is a unique experience of community, musical celebration, and helping others!
SHOW UP: As a no-commitment, no-rehearsal choir, Pop-Up Choir is open to all. Truly no musical experience is necessary to participate in an event! Just show up. You won’t regret it!
SING OUT: Nationally recognized performer and teacher Kira Willey leads singers of all skill levels in a joyful, judgment-free atmosphere. She’s backed up by crazy-talented pro musicians Eve Sheldon and Noah Jarrett. Attendees learn a simple and fun arrangement of a contemporary pop or folk song on the spot. After about an hour, the song is ready for its final “performance,” which is streamed live online!
DO GOOD: Pop-Up Choir events are usually free admission; attendees are asked to contribute to the evening’s chosen cause—this could mean bringing canned goods for a food bank, or a gently used coat for the local shelter. We love putting our time and talent into causes which improve our community and help those around us. Pop-Up Choir has supported many wonderful charitable organizations such as Rolling Harvest, Hunterdon Helpline, ArtYard, Safe Harbor Child Access Centers, and more.
"I am still absorbing how wonderful the Pop-Up Choir event was! Many, many thanks for such a unique and wonderful evening, for charming and cajoling such an impressive performance out of a group of absolute beginners, and for raising over $xx for ArtYard!!!! I am so grateful and touched. We all loved it!" - Jill Kearney, Executive Director, ArtYard
HIRE THE CHOIR!
Kira and her Pop-Up Crew would love to help you create a community-building, totally unique, incredibly fun event for your fundraiser or company retreat, or as a unique interactive performance event at your venue.
Add a singing element to your existing event, or make Pop-Up Choir into a full evening of musical fun by adding our fabulous DJ ARM 18, who can spin jazz, rock, and old school hip-hop with the warm snap, crackle and pop of vinyl!
Here's what Tim Fallon, CEO of PBS39, had to say after our Pop-Up Choir event with his entire staff:
"Kira Willey and her fellow musicians from Pop-Up Choir brought their enthusiasm and expertise to our station recently for a team-building exercise. They engaged our team members with a palpable passion for the music. Our experience with the Pop-Up Choir enabled us to connect as a group in a very unique way and left us feeling inspired. What was amazing is that out of all of that fun, we actually made great music!"
If desired, the event can support a social cause of your choice or affiliation. Options also include a professionally produced video of the event. And last but certainly not least—our team will ensure the event runs smoothly, from planning to execution to clean up!
