The Prairie Fire Lady Choir is a Twin Cities-based singing group open to ladies of all levels of musical skill. Our mission is to create a space where ladies can come together to sing, take risks, stretch skills and share our collective talent with the world.
We operate on a volunteer basis using a consensus decision-making process to guide the artistic direction of the choir. Guided by a small leadership committee, our more than 40 active members vote on song selection, artistic decisions and administrative issues. We’re building a creative community one song at a time.
By day (and night) we work as stay-at-home moms, scientists, health-care providers, teachers, artists, researchers, social workers, graphic designers, academics, writers, program administrators, therapists and servers. Together, we sing new songs written and arranged by members of the choir, as well as original arrangements of popular songs such as Freedom by George Michael, Madeleine Mary by Bonnie Prince Billy, and Can’t Hardly Wait by the Replacements.
During our second season we performed at a wide variety of events and venues, including the Walker Art Center, the Northern Spark festival, Amsterdam Bar & Hall, Triple Rock, the Co-Kisser Poetry and Film Festival, and aboard the Jonathan Paddleford as part of the Mississippi River Revue. We were also honored to sing the National Anthem at games for both the Saint Paul Saints and the Minnesota Lynx. Our upcoming third season promises even more excitement and happy surprises for our growing choir!
Your support will help PFLC with the administrative costs of managing a choir of almost 60 members as well as pay for rehearsal space through our 2013 season.
