About The Stop Shopping Choir

We are a radical performance community based in New York City, we come to the Choir from many different creative and activist backgrounds. We have evolved a very particular sound and performance experience from the synthesis of our lived experience. We are grounded in the work of Justice and in service to the Earth. We love to Sing together.

THE STOP SHOPPING CHOIR

CHOIR COUNCIL

Founded in 2019 The Stop Shopping Choir Council is made up of elected choir members chosen to take care of the choir at large. The council members rotate around every six months and like stewards of the land, they anticipate and tend to the choir’s needs, and instigate the community’s collective imagination. Self-determined and evolving, the council just wants to help.

Current members : Evita Jimenez, Kai Pelton, Sylver Pondolfino, Ashni Sunder, Max Andrucki, and Sunder Ganglani

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN THE CHOIR?

We rehearse on Sunday evenings. Please join us for a full rehearsal and we can, together, see if it is a good fit. We have many levels of singers, from Broadway belters and classically trained to karoake and secret shower crooners. Site reading and the ability to read music are not necessary!  Check out our music.

COMMUNITY AGREEMENTS

The Church of Stop Shopping is intent on creating a safe and vibrant environment, one that encourages creativity, courageous activism and community consciousness.

We consider each other’s feelings and comfort levels.

We treat each other with respect and do our best to understand each other’s differences.

We encourage interpersonal complexity, lets be involved in each other’s lives!

CHOIR EMERGENCY FUND

We have a small emergency fund which is available for the choir, usually grants and loans of 250$ or less. This is one way we help eachother  through rough patches as many of us live paycheck to paycheck. Would you like to CONTRIBUTE to the Choir Emergency Fund?
