The entire June 5, 2010 performance by Complaints Choir of Columbus, with additional material about its creation.
This project was initiated by artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen in 2005. See all the complaints choirs of the world at www.complaintschoir.org.
One day, artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen thought about how often people complain. In the Finnish vocabulary there is an expression "Valituskuoro". It means "complaints choir" and it is used to describe situations where a lot of people are complaining simultaneously. They had an idea. What if they put together an actual choir and had people sing their complaints?
After the success of their first effort in Birmingham, England, the artists received numerous letters, asking them to initiate Complaints Choirs around the world. To meet the demand for Complaints Choirs worldwide, Kalleinen & Kochta-Kalleinen have created a web site to encourage organizations to form their own complaints choirs. CMA is excited to be able to facilitate a Complaints Choir for the central Ohio community.
