Guild Hall (158 Main Street, East Hampton) has announced the return of Canada’s famed CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR!, presented in partnership with The Clubhouse, on Wednesday, June 22 at 7:30PM. The interactive musical event will continue the GUILD HALL: OFFSITE adventure, taking place at The Clubhouse, 174 Daniels Hole Road, East Hampton. Excessive joy and ear to ear smiles are expected.
CHOIR! CHOIR! CHOIR! will teach an audience of 200+ an original arrangement of a universally beloved song for all to sing along. The engagement, which has been funded through the Mid Atlantic Tours program of Mid Atlantic Arts with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, is back by popular demand after a memorable concert in the John Drew Theater in 2018, where the audience participated in an emotional rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.
Choir! Choir! Choir! is a Toronto-based singing group led by creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman. The duo takes a non-traditional approach; there are no auditions, and the audience is the choir. Attendees simply show up and are taught an original arrangement to a song chosen by the duo that they are confident will be both familiar and loved by all. Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube amassing 10’s of millions of views on some of their videos.
The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, David Byrne, Rick Astley, Tegan and Sara, and Rufus Wainwright, and onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the likes of Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips. They’ve created content for NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar with Hamilton’s Brandon Victor Dixon, and have performed at the MET in New York for New York Pride and hosted their own float in Toronto Pride. They remembered Canadian music hero Gord Downie by performing Grace Too with the surviving members of the Tragically Hip to 10,000 fans in Toronto.
Choir! Choir! Choir! exists to celebrate music and push the boundaries between practice and performance, artist and audience, offering therapeutic benefits with the ultimate side effect: a powerful community.
