Welcome to the blog of the Portland Maine Carol Slam.
What is a carol slam? It’s like a poetry slam or story slam, but for carols. Composers will write original carols. A house choir will perform them for a cafe audience (you!). The audience will pick the best carol. The winning composer will get a wreath.
The goal is to inspire new holiday carols, as an antidote to the same old stuff every year. The first ever carol slam in 2012 was lots of fun. We had great new carols, a great choir, and a great crowd.
The third annual Carol Slam will take place on Saturday, December 20st, 2014 at 2:30pm, at Bull Feeney’s in Portland’s Old Port.
Check out the other posts here on the blog to learn more. If you’re a singer, you can join the house choir. If you’re a composer, you can write a new carol. If you’re both, do both! If you’re not, come anyway and help pick the best carol.
