The Pop Up Choir Christmas gig – 13th December 2011

The Pop Up Choir is back with a festive bang for Autumn/Winter 2011 and we’ve got our Christmas gig lined up at the Black Prince in Kennington. Come say hello on Tuesday 13th December and grab yourself a glass of mulled cider and enjoy the music. We have other acts performing alongside us, including another choir doing their first ever gig.

Get into the festive spirit in South London. Starting at 7.30pm. More details on the flyer below and also on our Facebook page.

Big thank you to everyone who came to see us perform at the South Bank

On Sunday during a rare moment of sunshine, The Pop Up Choir performed for a 20 minute set on the band stand in Market Square behind the Royal Festival Hall. We were all really happy with the performance, and we cut through the hangovers and performed:

  • Lump
  • Dario
  • The River Is Flowing
  • Space Oddity
  • And finally, Sledgehammer
Sledgehammer is always a crowd pleaser. Big thanks to the guys at the South Bank for inviting us to sing – we all loved singing in the sunshine. All the wonderful food at the market helped as well.

Pop Up Choir this summer on the South Bank

The Pop Up Choir crew is taking its customary summer break right now, enjoying all that London has to offer in the way of sunshine, fun and…rain. But that doesn’t stop us from flexing the vocal chords and we’re back for a special one-off summer gig. Watch out for us on the 14th August at the South Bank Centre.

More details will be released on our Facebook Page and on our Twitter feed.

We will be performing numbers new and old, including Space Oddity, Dario and Who’s That Girl.

The Pop Up Choir perform tonight in Brick Lane and Spitalfields

Tonight we’re taking one of our rehearsals on the road and giving it an airing out in East London. If you’re in the Brick Lane area come and find us! We’ll be starting at Spitalfields at 7pm and then heading down Brick Lane way. This area is tried and tested for us as we popped down to Brick Lane (just under the bridge near the Vibe Bar) after our gig at the Maiden in Shoreditch for My Big Fat Royal Wedding a few months back. You can see pictures from this gig on our Facebook page.

If you can’t join us tonight, fear not! We have a very exciting gig coming up in August (at the South Bank – check back on this blog or on our Facebook page for details nearer the time) and no doubt we’ll be on the road again before the summer is up.

Just in case you weren’t sure whether to come, we have recently added Space Oddity to our repertoire and it’s beautiful. Thanks to Dominic for another awesome arrangement.

Hope to see you all tonight.
