About Us

We’re changing our name to Prairie Fire Choir!

This fall, our members went through a collaborative process to carefully consider our name and its implications for gender inclusivity. We are excited to begin the new year with a name that better reflects our membership, which is open to any women (cis and trans), and femme and non-binary folks!

Please expect some name overlap as we work through the logistics.

Prairie Fire Choir (PFC) is a Twin Cities-based, a cappella singing group of seventy members who raise their collective voices across the state in support of art, community, and creativity. 

Formed in 2010, Prairie Fire Choir offers a supportive, fun, and educational environment to explore musical passions. PFC performs unique arrangements of songs by Leonard Cohen, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Kimbra, Metallica and Bill Withers, among others. The choir has performed at a wide variety of events and venues throughout the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.

We strive to demonstrate fairness, justice, equity, and respect by being open to different voices and perspectives, developing an understanding of different cultures, experiences and communities, and making a conscious effort to be welcoming, helpful and respectful to everyone. In that inclusive spirit, we amplify causes we care about, including but not limited to social justice, women’s rights, racial justice, environmental justice, and LGBTQ rights. We know there is always room for growth, and that to be successful, this work must be authentic, consistent, and continual.
