The Philly Complaint Choir-First Person Festival

    The Philly Complaint Choir is a community art project modeled after a concert in Helsinki, which has inspired other choirs to form in such cities as Melbourne, Jerusalem and Chicago. Each choir has written their own songs shaped by the regional discomforts of daily life. Now nearly sixty talented and whiney Philadelphians have come together, committed to a rehearsal schedule and are expressing some of the city’s most popular complaints which have been collected throughout the city over the last few months. Artist SHELLEY SPECTOR and composer EVAN SOLOT will be in our studios to describe the process. This is part of the Philadelphia First Person Arts Festival. Listen to the mp3
