ABOUT POP CHOIR EXPERIENCES

Pop Choir Experiences are designed to create unforgettable, life-affirming events for those who want to take things to the next level. Pop Choir Experiences are ticketed events and an additional cost to the monthly Pop Choir Membership. Local community Pop Choir performances like flash-mobs, fun runs, farmers markets, Christmas carols or any other pre-organised event by a third party which Pop Choir has been invited to perform at will still be on offer for free as part of the monthly Pop Choir Membership. Pop Choir Experiences are one-off, tailor-made events, designed by the Pop Choir team specifically for Pop Choir Members to experience what it would be like to work with professionals and be a part of professional productions for the day while also supporting a local charity.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ABC  RECORDING EXPERIENCE

What does Pop Choir Experience cost?

The price for the ABC Studios Recording Experience on Sunday 4th August is $89 per person. Each Pop Choir Experience will be priced differently depending on each event.

All proceeds from ticket sales go towards the making of these spectacular events, which are designed for Pop Choir Members to experience once in a lifetime, one-off events.

It takes a lot of professionals, services, products and planning to put on a successful ABC Recording Experience and we want to make sure you have the best experience possible.

How are Pop Choir Experiences different from performances put on as part of my Pop Choir Membership?

All performances as part of the monthly Pop Choir Membership, other than flash-mobs, have been designed by third parties. Organisations like Legacy (Melbourne Town Hall ) and John St Peeters (Elvis Show – Hamer Hall) come to us, and they plan, design, organise and pay to put on the event themselves, at no cost to Pop Choir. So these events are free to Pop Choir Members. 

Darryl and Sharon love to think big and thought, why wait for these events to come to us once in a blue moon? Let’s instead put on our own spectacular events specifically designed for Pop Choir Members. So Pop Choir Experiences was born! 

 

Do I need to be a good singer to participate in Pop Choir Experiences?

Absolutely not! Anyone can join Pop Choir Experiences, no matter how good of a singer you are or think you are.

As always, the Pop Choir Motto is “if you can speak you can sing”.

All Pop Choir Experiences will be tailor made with arrangements that are super easy to learn and sing. Pop Choir arrangements will be designed to easily blend in and sound amazing with whatever professionals are joining Pop Choir on stage, in the recording studio, television studio or any other iconic location.

 

Will my individual singing voice be heard at the ABC studio or on the final recording?

The only thing being recorded at the ABC studio is the choir as a whole. When singing with your headphones on, you will only hear the choir singing together. Microphones will be placed high in the air above the choir, to pick up the sound of the choir singing together. This is what you will hear in your individual headphones. It will be such a magical, immersive, uniting experience, singing while hearing the whole choir in your headphones will be epic!

 

Do I have to do Pop Choir Experiences?

Absolutely not! Pop Choir Experiences are only for those who want to be involved.

Would I be expected to practice for Pop Choir Experiences outside of weekly Pop Choir rehearsals?

Definitely yes! Although the utmost care and attention to detail has gone into designing a fun and easy experience, you will be expected to show a level of commitment to the project to help with its success. This means learning your lyrics and parts as best as you can, using the Members Portal in the weeks prior to the event, as well as trying hard in sessions. Although the events will be fun, we still want to sound and look the best as we can.

Will we only be recording the Pop Choir Experiences Single at the ABC studios?

No, we will also record and film an arrangement that we have all learnt together in sessions. So, we will record and film two songs – the Pop Choir Experiences ABC Studios single and a cover, which we will reveal soon. 

How will we learn the new Pop Choir Experiences single?

The Pop Choir Experiences single will be introduced in week 6 of Term 2 for everyone to learn as one of the Term 2 arrangements. If you’re not part of the Pop Choir Experience at ABC Studios, we will still sing the Pop Choir original song at other performances.

 

Will any royalties be made from the Pop Choir single?

Sadly no! The music industry has changed dramatically in recent years. No one sells music anymore with the introduction of streaming services like Spotifty. Spotify only pays the artist 0.001% per stream. So an artist has to achieve 1 million people to listen to their song to make $1000. If by chance we had a miracle and the Pop Choir single has 1 million views we will pop open the champagne and use the $1000 from spotify to put on a party for all Pop Choir members involved. Let’s go for it!!

What happens if an experience is cancelled?

If we need to cancel, the Pop Choir team will issue full refunds to all ticket holders.
