Choir! Choir! Choir! Unite Singers at U.S.–Mexico Border

Choir! Choir! Choir!, led by Canadian artists Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, forms impromptu choirs of strangers to learn songs and perform a concert together. The duo takes a non-traditional approach; there are no auditions, and the audience is the choir. “Choir! Choir! Choir! has fashioned a profound way for people to connect and interact” (New Yorker) and their ArtPower at UC San Diego performance on Sunday, October 13, at 3 p.m. will unite singers from both sides of the US–Mexico border to sing and celebrate the unique friendship, culture, and community we share in the border region of San Diego and Tijuana. There are few places on earth so scenic where you can gather people from two countries at once to create beautiful music together and share in how special it is to be in this particular place in the world.

While we will be divided by the physical border, music knows no boundaries and our voices together will transcend barriers. “When you sing with others, you become bonded in ways that strengthen yourself and expand your sense of community. The opportunity to experience this with the people of San Diego and Tijuana, across borders and languages, is very exciting. We can’t wait!” says Nobu Adilman of Choir! Choir! Choir! Leveraging music as a global language that everyone can connect to, Choir! Choir! Choir!, along with ArtPower, looks deeper at how communities collaborate and interact.

“The event shows that the arts can overcome obstacles that separates us and resonate with the harmonies which connect us all,” added ArtPower Executive Director Jordan Peimer. Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers and a thriving international fan base on YouTube. The group has performed with renowned artists such as Patti Smith, Tegan and Sara, David Byrne, Rick Astley, and Rufus Wainwright, and onstage at New York’s Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall with the likes of Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips.

Choir! Choir! Choir! exists to celebrate music and push the boundaries between practice and  performance, artist and audience, offering therapeutic benefits with the ultimate side effect: a powerful community. This concert is an ArtPower Special Event. This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is encouraged and can be reserved through Eventbrite. More information can be found at here.
