The Silver Lake Chorus On World Cafe

The Silver Lake Chorus.
The Silver Lake Chorus.

It's safe to say The Silver Lake Chorus probably sings cooler songs than your high-school chorus did. Silver Lake, Calif., the chorus' home, is a popular spot among musicians. So the group's repertoire consists of music written for them by the likes of Aimee Mann, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver.

On today's episode, The Silver Lake Chorus performs live in Pilgrim Church, where the group rehearses. On this World Cafe segment, chorus director Mikey Wells and his co-arranger Heather Ogilvy discuss their joy in singing and explain how the chorus came to be.
