Choir Choir Choir

David Byrne

Choir! Choir! Choir! is a Canadian musical organization. Instead of a traditional model, the choir is structured so that basically anybody who wants to attend an event is welcome to perform. They are known for their tributes to musical legends like Leonard Cohen and Chris Cornell, which are usually performed by choirs upwards of 200 people.

David Byrne was curious about the organization and the performances. He performed David Bowie’s Heroes as part of the Under the Radar Festival in New York with a background of singers who were strangers. His response: “One becomes a part of something larger than oneself, and something in our makeup rewards us when that happens. We cling to our individuality, but we experience true ecstasy when we give it up. So, the reward experience is part of the show.”
