“Spice” Things Up at the Singing Fountain this Thursday

Wannabe a Spice Girl? East Passyunk Pop-up Choir Gives You the Chance.

The general public is invited to channel their best Scary Spice, Sporty Spice, Baby Spice, Ginger Spice and Posh Spice at the Spice Girls Pop-Up Choir this Thursday, June 21, 2018 during Make Music Day. The event will take place from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Singing Fountain (intersection of 11th Street and East Passyunk Ave.).  This free event is hosted by the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, South Fellini and Make Music Philadelphia.

Participants will engage in a brief rehearsal led by local singer-songwriter and certified music therapist Carolyn Thorn, followed by a public performance and recording of the night. No experience is necessary – just a love of singing. Participation is free and open to all ages.

The pop-up choir is organized as part of Make Music Day, an international musical celebration with concerts on streets, sidewalks and parks in cities around the world.

“Make Music Day is a worldwide event on the summer solstice to celebrate music,” said South Fellini co-founder and East Passyunk business owner Tony Trov, “Philadelphia will be full of events all day that invite the public to come out, learn to sing, and have a good time. We’re gonna teach everyone the Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe.’

Trov said that the event is inspired by a successful community pop-up choir held on East Passyunk Ave. during the 2017 Christmas season. “The area around the Singing Fountain was completely full with over 80 people. The response was so great we wanted to do it again. We just felt like the time was right to plan this over Make Music Day,” explained Trov, “We have over 200 signed up…on Facebook – we can’t wait to see what the response will be.”

The Singing Fountain is located at East Passyunk Ave., 11th and Tasker streets.

Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now held on the same day in more than 800 cities in 120 countries. Different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

South Fellini to replace Eclectic Expressionism on East Passyunk Avenue

Do you remember the Queen of Jeans sign that was posted outside of the former King of Jeans location last year? How about the Toynbee tiles you might still spot around the city? South Fellini turns these things and more of your favorite Philly-isms into t-shirts, pins and more.
