Popup Choir Amsterdam

Singing together in Amsterdam city-centre. Free. Non-committal. Relaxed.


Come and join Popup Choir: the new non-committal popchoir in Amsterdam! Every other week we get together in the centre of Amsterdam (directly behind the Hermitage) to learn and sing one of the finest songs in pop music. We choose one major hit and make our own choir-version of it.

We learn the different parts in little over an hour (so easy, everyone can join!), with the help of a professional conductor and guitarist, then we make a beautiful video recording of the result, and of course we stay a little longer to have a beer afterwards. Singing in a choir, just a little different than what you expected…

Popup Choir is every other week on Thursday night. Doors open at 19:30 and we start singing at 20.00. Location: the glass house inside the Diaconie Amsterdam building, Nieuwe Herengracht 18 (see below) – although in the summer we prefer outside in the garden!

Popup Choir is a sort of non-committal ‘walk-in choir’: we work by pay-what-you-want! Afterwards you can leave some money in the guitarcase – but we prefer if you return the next time with some friends! Come see if you like it, and keep coming if you do…

Check out the songs we’re doing the coming nights on the left. On our facebook page (dutch) you’ll find the rest of the data – and most importantly: what songs we’re gonna be doing!


You can book Popup Choir for any type of event: festivals, weddings, conferences and similar events – throughout the Netherlands of course. Are you in for an activity that makes everybody happy within an hour?

Tijmen (guitarist) and Maarten (conductor) practice a song with all the attendees, and work on teamwork and cooperation in the process.

Groups of 10 up to a 1000 persons become an instant choir: we guarantee a beautiful polyphonic result within the hour. Contact us to plan the perfect group activity with us!


Popup Choir started from an initiative by the Diaconie in Amsterdam. More info: http://www.diaconie.org
