Youngstown performers sing about community complaints

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - We all have our complaints, and group of local performers are expressing hundreds of them using their musical talents.

The Youngstown Complaints Choir is a group of local performers who have composed a 10-minute song based on complaints from area citizens.

The song, that's been several months in the making, started with nothing other than gripes.

In fact, the group collected 30 pages worth of complaints, posted on Facebook by the Youngstown community. The complaints range from personal to political.

"You know we have lots of choirs that offer gratitude," said coordinator Kelly Bancroft. "To be able to take your complaints and get together with a group of people and craft it into art seems to be to be a productive life affirming activity."

The Complaints Choir is part of an international movement. Bancroft says similar groups perform around the world in their own communities.

The Youngstown Complaints Choir is scheduled to perform three-times on November 11th at The First Unitarian Universalist Church on Elm Street. The performances are at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
