(un)choir

A new kind of choral experience: learn your part and sing a song in harmony, all in one fun evening! (un)choir turns the tables on traditional choir. No auditions, no rehearsals, no long-term commitment - just show up and sing a song you love!

You will get a lyric sheet, then Allison Hughes, music director for College Park Chorale, will teach you 2 or 3 part harmony to a well-known song. To cap the evening off, you'll then sing your heart out with a choir of your new best friends!

In honor of his recent farewell tour, this event's song will be "America" by Paul Simon.
