Hello Poppets! It’s been a while since we have updated the blog – mostly because it was such an action packed end to the year. Goodbye 2016… Three gigs in a week in the run up to Christmas, amid all of the lurgy flying about almost killed us but we survived! And seeing as itContinue reading “New year, New Guest MD, New Logo!”
The wonderful @ThePopUpChoir performing with the #lacfextra at the @Londonacappella! Sounding excellent! pic.twitter.com/tmp0oGPRR5 — LondonACappella (@Londonacappella) January 30, 2016 YESSS! We had a fantastic time at London Acapella Festival. It was our first visit, and hopefully the first of many. *HINT HINT* *DO YOU THINK THEY GOT THAT* *GOD I WISH I’D GOT THE HASHTAG CORRECTContinue reading “Pop-Up at London Acapella Festival 2016 – gig report”
There won’t be many words to this post as we’re all quietly recovering from the after party to last night’s wonderful launch of Mini Moderns REMIX 2 at the Southbank Centre shop.
After last week’s post from the stalls, here’s Charlie (Alto 2s) on what it was like performing at the epic Pipes V Mics. The trouble with most mornings is that they’re in the morning. I confess I’m not a morning person, it takes a lot of caffeine to get me up to speed. So itContinue reading “Gig Report: We sang at the Royal Festival Hall. That is all.”
With an early start,short notice and Mothering Sunday to boot, not everyone who wanted to could take part in Sunday’s Pipes V Mics concert, in which Pop-Up joined Shlomo in his Rumble piece for voices and organ. So some Poppers got to see the choir from a different angle – the audience! Here’s Emily Falconer (sops)Continue reading “Gig Report: Pipes V Mics – the view from the stalls”
Um, so Pop-Up had a pretty sweet weekend because a bunch of us sang with Shlomo again! As part of his massive Pipes vs Mics show at the Southbank Centre, he composed a piece for the Royal Festival Hall organ called Rumble. It brought beatboxers and pipe organ together as nature intended, and Pop-Up joined forcesContinue reading “Pipes vs Mics! A Pop-Up Rumble with Shlomo”
Following on from Andrew’s piece, we decided to get view from a relative newcomer. Someone who hasn’t yet been completely sucked in to the choir, or Boozy Tuesday. (Andrew’s been in Pop-Up since 2010 and is now thoroughly brainwashed by beer and reindeer songs.) Annabel, pictured with Pop-Up at our wedding gig this weekend, holdingContinue reading “Newbie blog! An Unseasoned Popper”
It’s been a busy old winter, with gigs from Clapham to Clapton, to say nothing of a festive crop of newbies joining us. Last night saw a cracking gig in The King’s Head, wrapping up our mini tour of Antic’s lovely pubs. Roll on 2014! In the deep, most likely.
We had a lovely write-up in the Brixton Buzz about our Bowie gig last night – thanks chaps! Hot, sunny, gorgeous weather: the perfect time for an outdoor show, right? We trooped down to the beautiful Bowie mural opposite Brixton Tube to do just that, and to dust down our version of Space Oddity (actuallyContinue reading “Bowie, Brixton and Beth’s wedding cake”
Last night we had the most fantastic fun at Makerhood‘s Making Uncovered event at Brixton East. After a lovely, sunny day pootling round south London – Camberwell Food and Drink Festival, we bow to you and your £1 Rioja stall – it was such a treat to head into Brixton East; a stunning arts venueContinue reading “First gigs for the new Poppers crop”
