Lady of the Week – Heidi McFadyen

Heidi McFadyen

Soprano 1

How long have you been in the choir?
This is my first season!

What’s your favorite PFLC song?
I celebrate the entire catalog, but Sisters Roar, Rebel Girl, Hive and Burn the White Flag are really fun to sing.

What’s your favorite thing about being in this choir?
I’m in awe of this community of women. Reconnecting with music is great. Working with intelligent, funny, and talented women with high standards to create that music is what makes the choir a special experience.

What do you like to do outside of choir?
I like going to the movies, concerts and theater. I like to learn, and I learn through art.

Who are your favorite local bands/musicians?
I’m from Eau Claire, Wis., so I’ve been an acolyte for Bon Iver/all Justin Vernon projects since forever. Lizzo, Polica and Cloud Cult. My Atmosphere fandom once helped me connect with kind skateboarding youths when I was lost and alone in Honolulu after too many Mai Tais. Minnesota music brings people together!

 What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I do a very intense rendition of 9 to 5. I feel those lyrics hard.

Describe yourself in three words
Overthinking this question.

If there was a movie about your life, who would play you?
Beanie Feldstein as young me, and J. Lo as older me. Where It’s At by Beck would play in the background of the opening scene while I repeatedly hit the snooze bar on my alarm. But…it’s not like I’ve thought about it much.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
