Lady of the Week – Annette Schiebout

Annette Schiebout

Tenor 2

How long have you been in the choir?
Since day 1, nearly 9 years ago

What’s your favorite PFLC song?
Burn the White Flag, Hive, Not a Good Man, Anthem, Porch Light, Sisters Roar

What’s your favorite thing about being in this choir?
I never wanted to be a performer and I didn’t have music in my life for over a decade, but being part of a community of amazing humans, making beautiful music together, has had a profound impact on my life. Even attending rehearsals and finding harmony with these women is the best therapy around. Not to mention we have had some incredible collaborations and performances over the years in some of the greatest venues in town.

What do you like to do outside of choir?
I write, garden, paint, organize various projects, teach, run an AirBNB/music literary venue called Bella Luna Studios at the Wolf House, hang with the puppies, and sing with three other local groups.

Who are your favorite local bands/musicians?
Dessa, Lizzo, Atmosphere, Her Crooked Heart, Humbird, Jeremy Messersmith, Haley, P.O.S., Chris Koza, Pavielle, Amanda Standalone, Cactus Blossoms, Charlie Parr, Dosh, Roma di Luna… this city is just brewing with talent and I love all kinds of music.

What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I honestly hate karaoke. I have had far too many embarrassing not-in-my-range-I-don’t-actually-know-the-song moments, but I have been known to sing Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly” and Patsy Cline’s “Crazy”

Describe yourself in three words
creative, driven, community-builder

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you?
Jennifer Lawrence

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Content in my skin, continuously making new things and having the time to think about them.
