Notorious Chorus is a group singing workshop for adults.  During the workshop, participants practice singing techniques to grow their voice and skills for singing in harmony.  Each four-week session will focus on learning great harmony songs from popular music -

past and present.

Choir Director on the Loose

Twenty years leading choirs and making music in the Kansas City area brings me in contact with all sorts of people who want to sing.  I often come across singers who miss singing in their high school choir, instrumentalists who want to work on their voice or practice singing harmony, and plenty of people who would love to give singing a try but are afraid they might not be good enough.  Notorious Chorus was designed to meet all of those needs in a relaxed and fun setting.  Come sing with us!  I promise you're good enough;)

Notoriously yours,

FAQ

1.  Will I ever be asked to sing alone?

Unless you are interested in singing solo, you will never be asked to sing alone.  Plus, singing with a group is THE BEST!

2.  Do I need to practice or prepare anything before the workshop?

Nah.   Just show up, grab a drink, and find a seat.  We'll learn everything we need to know during the course of the evening.  You will have access to videos if you'd like to practice at home but it is not required.

3.  Does this chorus ever actually perform?

We may pop into the bar and sing for the lucky patrons on the final meeting of the session.  And we did get an invite to sing at the Crossroads Music Fest!   But, our main focus is singing together for fun.  Any performances would be informal and optional.

4.  Do I get to drink beer?

If you like beer, Stockyards has some of the best beer in Kansas City in addition to a fully-stocked bar.  But you can also just drink water!

5.  This workshop says it's for adults.  Can my child attend?

Absolutely!   There is no age restriction.

6.  Will we be divided by vocal part?

We will learn all the parts together as a group then you will decide which part suits you best.

7.  Do I have to read music to participate?

Music reading skills are not necessary but music will be provided.  A music reading primer is available before each workshop if you'd like to learn!
