Complaint Choirs

‘Tis the season for choir sings and choral sings (and acapella sing offs, whee, that was fun).

Thanks to Ryan sending me the link to Larry Ferlazzo’s blog I discovered the Helsinki Complaint Choir and got a good giggle. A quick google search discovered many more language and culture specific Complaint Choirs. (who knew so many people had issues with toilet paper?). In any event, I thought you might enjoy these. Feel free to complaint/lament/comment and add links to others as you find them.

Barbara is a Lecturer in Hispanic Studies at a small liberal arts college in Maine. Rumor has it this was also her alma mater. She used to work for a small liberal arts college in the cornfields of Ohio for almost 20 years as a teacher and language center director. Prior to these adventures in higher ed she taught high school Spanish and loved it. She wishes she had more time in her life to play with her dogs, write, read, swim, do yoga things and making stuff out of clay. To see her online portfolio please click here!
