Whats flash singing?

0

It’s a concept developed by Belinda McArdle and the groups she leads down Geelong way. (For out-of-towners who may be reading this, Geelong is a satellite city in Victoria, Australia, not too far from Melbourne.) When flash singing, participants decide on a time and location (usually a public place) to meet for a spontaneous sing-in. They meet at the agreed time and place, sing for a while, then quickly disperse. Singers report that these occasions are very exciting, and most importantly, great fun. Conceptually, one of the most interesting things about these “events” is that while they are conducted in a public place, they are not (strictly speaking) “public performances”. That is, the singing circle configuration is maintained (participants face inwards) and nothing about the activity solicits or acknowledges an audience (although passers-by are welcome to join-in!).
