Bringing communal karaoke to South Bank.
Like karaoke? Fond of singing in public in general, whether you're solo or in a group? Then it's time to up your crooning game. Pub Choir is exactly what it sounds like — aka a gathering of folks belting out a tune, together, in a bar. It's basically what happens whenever someone puts 'Wonderwall' or 'Weather With You' on the jukebox, but in a more organised fashion.
The event happens monthly; however, as part of The Festival — aka the arts and culture fest that's currently taking over southeast Queensland alongside the Commonwealth Games — they're throwing an extra special shindig. On April 5, Pub Choir will be heading on over to The Festival's Brisbane Hub at the South Bank Cultural Forecourt for what's certain to be a loud celebration — and yes, that means South Brissie will be alive with the sound of music this time around.
Unlike the usual get-togethers, participation is free. Don't worry, the area is licensed, so you'll still be able to buy drinks. Yes, singing and sipping go hand-in-hand, as they always do — just in a bigger space.
If you're not usually the type of person to unleash their inner Beyonce in front of the masses, don't worry. The great thing about choirs is that everyone is singing, so you are literally a voice in the crowd. In fact, you might just find joining in the fun cathartic. If you can't feel free when you're crooning along with hundreds of others, when can you?
