Chronic Complainers to Unite in Harmony

09-22-07_Complaint_Choir.jpgFor all you Chicagoist fans who love to bitch--whether it’s about the CTA, Macy’s, Comments by Guest #2, or a typo right here on Chicagoist--we’ve found a new forum for you: The Complaints Choir of Chicago. Artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen will work with local musician Jeremy Jacobsen to create the first choir of complainers in the Midwest.

No singing experience is needed, just a good gripe. The choir will meet during five workshops in October. The grand premiere of the Complaints Choir will be November 3 at the MCA, as part of the Humanities Festival.

Chronic complainers are encouraged to send their complaints to, and all complaints, from daily irritations to global nuisances, will be stitch together with all participants during the workshops.
