Helsinki Complaints Choir

November 8, 2006

Perhaps the notion of “kvetch” is being updated with the birth of “Complaint Choirs.” Finnish artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen collected the pet peeves and angst-ridden pleas of people in Helsinki and then composed this choral work around the list of complaints. The idea seems to be catching on as a “Complaint Choir” has started in Birmingham as well. Evidently people like to complain in Helsinki (as remarked in the comments section), and this song goes on WAY too long (8:30). I stuck it out to the bitter end but you’ll get the idea by four minutes.
