We get asked A LOT(!) what is Pub Cór. It’s actually probably easier to explain what we’re not and really we are NOT a Choir! #wearenotachoir – at least not in the traditional sense of the word. Pub Cór is more of a Platform, or Space where you can pop along on a night, in safety and sing.
Pub Cór is a monthly drop-in singing event made up in equal parts singing, fun, and community-building. Your night unfolds before you like magic: you get a lyric sheet at the door, Sabrina and Bobby teach you the vocal arrangement, you end up sounding AMAZING & the video is recorded. Everyone has a ball and goes home feeling deadly!
But to really know more about us you need to know about YOU!
Pub Cór is ALL about YOU. We fully believe that everybody can sing although it’s not even about how good anybody is. What’s more important is that we fully believe that inside everyone there is a little fire that represents your desire to sing. All we do is provide the platform and the encouragement (and a bit of direction).
How did we begin?
Early in 2019 when Bobby was sent a link to a video from Australia showing Pub Choir with the thousands of people singing together he started digging around to see what else was out there. Then he found Choir! Choir! Choir! in Canada and was inspired!
How could anybody get large groups of people together, on one evening, without any rehearsal and pull off three part harmony ‘Epics’ in 90 minutes?And here we are…
Pub Cór is not a reinvention of the wheel, it is more a Philosophy that if you want to sing (and let’s face it, most people – even those in denial – do) nothing should get in your way.
So what is to stop you?
Commitment, Talent(?), Time, Cliques, Anxiety, Confidence, Perfectionism, Self Doubt are some of the
Pub Cór is a relaxed, informal night that encourages you to let your hair down, open your mouth and let it all out. Under the capable guidance of Bobby Harpur and Sabrina O’Reilly we take a group of likeminded souls, split you into three groups and begin the process of putting the Audio Jigsaw together. 90 minutes later we record the complete song (twice), put it up on YouTube and you get to enjoy it and share it with friends and family forevermore!
