Spring Term Registration Is Now Closed
My Pop Choir's upcoming summer term will begin July. More details coming soon. You can subscribe to our mailing list here and we will notify you when registration opens.
My Pop Choir's virtual choir is a completely unique take on virtual choir programming. By utilizing post recording audio software, My Pop Choir's virtual choir includes built in harmonies, so when you sing along to the music, it feels like you are actually singing in a real choir!
You don't need any technology to participate besides a computer and access to the internet.
In addition, we offer private concerts, music workshops, and an open mic performance evening, all designed to entertain you and build your skills as a singer!
To top it all off, every term we create a music video choir performance. Visit our Performance Page to view past terms' Music Videos.
If you think you might be overwhelmed by all the content we are providing, rest assured it is perfectly okay to attend only the featured choir sessions. The music video, private concerts, workshops, and open mics are completely optional.
I was a little hesitant at first about the concept of a virtual choir…how could that work if we weren’t singing together ? I decided to jump in and see what it was about and it was the best decision ever! Not only did the My Pop Choir workshops and choir sessions provide me with some structure and something to look forward to during some lonely times, but I believe my singing ability has also improved!
Workshops, Concerts & Open Mic
Every Monday we offer one of the following 3 activities or events: a music related workshop, a private concert exclusive members of the term, or an Open Mic, each happening on a different Monday.
Our 15 minute taped workshops discuss interesting and informative aspects of singing and music in general. Workshop subjects will include but are not limited to:
various topics on music theory to improve your knowledge on singing from a chart
a variety of practical approaches on improving the health and quality of your singing voice
in depth analysis of how our music videos are put together and how choir arrangements are made for MPC
a look at ear training, harmony singing, and many other facets of singing and music in general
Our private concerts will showcase some incredible artists who will be performing live and virtually through YouTube.
We want to see you perform! Members of the term will have the opportunity to showcase their talents to the rest of the group. This will be a live performance, and is completely optional. We know that performing solo is not for everybody!
My Pop Choir's main component for the virtual term is our Wednesday evening choir sessions. The sessions use both Zoom and YouTube for a fully integrated choral experience. Here is the breakdown of a typical choir session:
At 6:30PM (EDT), a Zoom meeting begins for casual socializing. You can attend and chat with your fellow members, join a breakout room, observe in the background, or join at 7:00PM once the choir session begins.
At 7:00PM (EDT), the choir session officially begins with an overview of the term's upcoming projects & events, a vocal warmup, and an opportunity to ask questions regarding current material.
At 7:30PM (EDT), the session continues with an hour long YouTube Premiere Video. These videos have built in harmonies, so it feels just like a real choir session. While you sing, you will hear how your voice sounds with the other harmonies. By using YouTube Premiere Video, members are able to comment in real time. This gives members the ability to ask questions and connect with each other virtually.
One of the songs in the term will be featured as a Music Video Choir Performance! It is always guaranteed to dazzle your friends and family! Check out our Performance Page to view past terms' Music Videos.
Note: Participation in our music videos is completely optional. On average about 60% of the members of the term participate so if this isn't your cup of tea, you won't be alone!
