Wicker Park Choral Singers

Building community through choral music - Celebrating 10 Years

Wicker Park Choral Singers is a Chicago-based all-volunteer choir dedicated to building community through choral music. 

Chorister of the Month - Sarah Homan

Every month we recognize one outstanding chorus member who has perfect attendance at rehearsals and goes above and beyond their call of duty to help the choir succeed.  The Chorister of the Month experiences extreme stardom, receives an awesome gift card, and copious amounts of high-fives. Today, we are finally caught up and are proud to present Sarah Homan, our November Chorister of the Month.  Despite being a brand new member this season, Sarah has already gotten accustomed to the survival of an all-volunteer choir and has dove right in and volunteered for more stuff!

November Chorister of the Month: Sarah Homan

How long have you been in WPCS? 

This is my first year!

What is your favorite WPCS memory so far? 

I vividly remember the first moments of my first rehearsal with WPCS, when we sight-read a Messiaen piece remarkably well for a first read. I was so excited to be among other musicians of that skill level.

What hobbies do you have outside of choir? 

Directing church gospel choirs, beach volleyball, reading, dog parks/beaches, concerts, and starting tango lessons and acro yoga.

If your life had a soundtrack what songs would be on it? 

"Work Your Faith" (J Moss),  "On the Run" (Tina Dico), "For My Good" (Vashawn Mitchell), "Stoned Soul Picnic" (New York Voices), "Crazy" (Narles Barkley), "Vocalise, Op. 34" (Rachmaninov, performed by Yo-Yo Ma and Bobby McFerrin), "Mud on the Tires" (Brad Paisley), "Jesus Loves Me" (Generation J)

What is your guilty listening pleasure? 

"Cold Duck" by Al Jarreau

If the choir were to plan a flash mob, what location would you choose and why?  

A busy El train platform singing "Hitchin' a Ride," to give commuters a story for the day OR Sing "Born to be Wild" or "Roll Me Away" at a motorcycle show in the city.
