2nd rehearsal of the Chicago Complaint Choir
The Chicago Complaint Choir met today for the second time. In the time between the 1st and second rehersal the lyrics were finalized and composer Jeremy Jacobsen aka the Lonesome Organist tried the almost impossible task to set the music to the 200+ complaints (that made it into the song). He had only 3 days time to do this.
In the rehearsal the choir went through the first verses and it sounded already good. The song is challenging with 4 voices, but it seems that the Chicago people have re not only talented complainers but gifted singers as well.
