“Pub Choir is really always about embracing average and letting people be free to be average. I think as a society/culture, we’re very obsessed with trying to be the best and feeling really competitive about stuff, but it’s really quite freeing to feel unimportant.”Astrid Jorgensen on the Crescendo Music Education Podcast
