VIRTUAL POP CHOIR
Virtual Pop Choir is our response to the COVID-19 pandemic! We sing online to keep our community connected and safe.
We are 70+ singers who are also teachers, lawyers, students, actors, business owners, contractors, nurses and even a firefighter! Our youngest member is 13 years old; our eldest is in their 70's. Predominantly, we are a choir of 25-45 year olds.
Singing changes your brain by releasing endorphins and oxytocin, known to reduce stress and anxiety levels--something we all need during these difficult times! Join our chill, diverse and loving community for a weekly dose of singing and camaraderie.
HOW TO JOIN
Send us an email! All levels are welcome.
Unless you are enrolled in our Youth Development program, you must be 18+ years of age to join.

HOW IT WORKS
Virtual Pop Choir sings on Tuesday nights via Zoom from 7:00-8:30 PM Pacific Time.
We welcome people from all of the diverse communities in our beautiful city, including our thriving LGBTQ+ community.
We sing current pop, indie, R&B, hip hop and gospel songs. Nearly all of our repertoire is arranged by director Rebecca Lam.
Below is an example of our repertoire for the Fall 2020 term:
Rather Be - Clean Bandit
I'll Be There - Jackson 5
Weak - SWV
Together Again - Janet Jackson
Souls Anchored - Sunday Service Choir
Song arrangements and practice tracks are available online for members to practice from home. All rehearsals are recorded so you can easily catch up if you miss a session!
Every 3-month term includes a minimum of 3 Virtual performance music videos. Members will be asked to record their performance to be compiled and produced into a virtual performance. Check out our video below for our performance of Stand By Me!
A 3-month term with Virtual Pop Choir costs $225. Registration priority is given to current members and alumni. New members must audition to join and may register on a first come, first served basis.
