It's Madi, the Playa Choir director...
"...wait, there's a choir at burning man?"
"...do I have to audition?"
"...is it gonna be cool?"
I hear you across the lines, you shower singers, you choir singers, you rock stars and band members, you drum-line fanatics and house music dancers, you background singers and minstrel-jackalopes...to answer your queries...
The playa choir has been rocking Sunday morning on the playa for the last 6 years, we've grown from 7 members to over 50 in that time and keep busting the seams of our performance spaces each year! Maybe you are looking for a playa experience that includes you in the performance, or a grounding daily experience where you get to sing and rock back and forth with a mass of sweaty half-dressed singers, maybe you want to play in our rhythm section...
For whatever reason you are reading this post, I am here to give the details to your deepest singing queries...
the playa choir rehearses:
Wed, Thurs, Fri and Saturday morning at 10:30 am at the Jazz Cafe, usually found in the Inner Circle around Center Camp
4 songs in 2-4 part harmony
On Sunday morning at 11, rehearsal at 10, place TBA....
We sing our asses off in one of the most amazing cities in the world!!
On Sunday, we give, as our gift to our city, an ecumenical Sunday morning service where the choir rocks the house, words are spoken, tears are shed, joys are heightened and sorrows washed away...It's really a damn hoot! You should come join us!
singers of all abilities
a rhythm section, meaning I need drums, bass, possible guitar, and a second keyboard player so I can direct and not play all the time.
If this interests you, come join our choir. We have a ball and we go for the ride!
contact me via email and I'll send you music and details!
much love and dusty-ass respect,
Blessed Cecilia, appear in visions to all musicians, (including me), appear and inspire
