About Popup Choir
This is the go-to-place to enjoy singing together. Whether you are an experienced singer, a pub singer or your voice only audience is your shower head. Popup Choir is here for everyone. Every week we pick a fantastic pop song, teach you three harmonies and make a super cool video of the magical result. You’re not just the audience, you are also the performer! Low key, and without any obligation: you can come sing whenever you feel like it. So no auditions, you don’t have to read musical notes and no experience is needed. You learn, you laugh and you get energized.
We think it’s important that everyone can participate. Whatever your situation, we usually work with ‘pay what you think it’s worth’. How does that work? Very simple. There is no entrance fee, but you determine this amount yourself afterwards. Cash in our guitar case or via the pin.
Best friends Maarten Bos (conservatory) and Tijmen de Koning (he didn’t) have known each other for more than 10 years and are – not only musically – very tuned in on each other. In 2017 the guys started Popup Choir: a weekly event for everyone to bring happiness by singing together. Little (but bigger) brother Maurits de Koning soon joined as videographer. Meanwhile, the events have grown from a small group with 10 enthusiastic singers, towards 1000 heroes in Paradiso Amsterdam in December 2019. Every week, between 100 and 200 people get together to sing. Will you join?
At the moment, our live events are suspended because, you know, the pandemic.

Singing is for everyone
Singing makes you happy and everyone has the ability to use their own voice. This is our fierce belief. It lowers stress and gets you out-of-your-head-and-into-your-body. When you sing together, you develop harmony with each other, you get a positive energy boost and to top it all off: you create a magical sound together, which you cannot do on your own! In short: only benefits. Overcome boundaries within yourself and between people. Singing with your colleagues, friends or network? Great idea! Hire us to bring harmony to your event.
