About The Pop-Up Choir

cropped-twitter_header-photo.jpgFormed in 2009 and based in Kennington, The Pop-Up Choir specialises in unforgettable acappella pop sets delivered anytime, anywhere. No mics, no speakers, just us and kick-ass arrangements of high-energy crowd pleasers, indie classics and spine-tingling soul from Adele, Pulp, Outkast, Prince, En Vogue, Mark Ronson, Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift, and more.

Previous bookings include Picturehouse Cinema’s sold-out Pitch Perfect 2 party at the Ritzy, a collaboration with Shlomo at the Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall and singing at the World’s Highest Cinema at The Top of the Shard.

We are delighted to be led by Musical Director and Scottish singer-songwriter Genevieve Dawson who brings with her infectious energy and her Stagg melodica “Trevor”.
