‘Choir! Choir! Choir!’ is a singing collective that was started by Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman.
Based in Toronto, Canada, These two guys started a singing group just so they (and their friends) could get together now and then and… well… sing.
Largely unstructured (they don’t use terms such as Sopranos, Altos, Tenors, Basses), C! C! C! (to shorten a bit of typing) have a minimalist approach to organised singing.
Yet, with seemingly very little effort, C! C! C! produce amazing sounds.
And anyone can just rock up on the night and, after hardly any rehearsal at all, just join the choir.
Whether experienced singerist or not.
Just. Join. In.
It sounds unique.
And it is.
It sounds doomed to failure.
It really isn’t.
Here’s C! C! C! being fronted by Talking Heads’ David Byrne.
They did this performance after an hour of rehearsal (and David came to it cold).
If Choir! Choir! Choir! ever come to the UK, I’d like to go along.
To join in.
