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 boozy environment. It's basically what happens whenever someone puts 'Wonderwall' or 'Weather With You' on the jukebox, but in a far more organised fashion.
Specifically, each session features a particular song, which attendees learn in three-part harmonies. Talented professionals are there to show you the ropes and lead the way, so all you need to do is show up and get singing — and drinking.
Doing the rounds of Brisbane venues since early 2017, Pub Choir has become mighty popular, with tickets getting snapped up very quickly for each monthly show. As a result, it's heading to the Riverstage for its biggest gig ever at 6pm on Sunday, May 9. And, although specific names haven't been announced, it'll have some sizeable Aussie music stars taking to the stage.
Yes, the CBD will be alive with the sound of music and the sounds of plenty of folks singing and sipping, because both go hand-in-hand here. And 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?
Tickets for Pub Choir at the Riverstage are on sale now for $45.
