Exclusive Video: The Growler Choir Performs “The Dayking”


Montreal’s Le Choeur Des Growlers — that “the Growler Choir” to us English-speakers — is exactly what you think it is, in the most epic way imaginable: an eighteen member choir comprised entirely of metal growlers. Founded by composer Pierre-Luc Senécal in 2016, the choir gave their debut public performance this past May, performing a piece based around Fortner Anderson’s poem “The Dayking” in a co-production with Le Vivier et Codes d’accès. The composition blends metal and contemporary music to create something that is undeniably unique… not to mention metal as fuck.
