Tickets for next Toowoomba Pub Choir are selling fast

IF YOU want to be part of Toowoomba's next edition of Pub Choir, you'll have to get in quickly.

More than a third of tickets have already been sold for the massive singing and drinking event, which is due to hit Blank Space on January 17.

Led by singing teacher Astrid Jorgensen, the concept involves bringing hundreds of strangers together to learn the harmonies for a popular song within two hours, performing it twice.

Blank Space owner Phil Coorey said he was amazed at the ticket response so soon after the newest event was announced.

"We sold a third of the tickets (on Tuesday)," he said.

"It's on a Thursday in January, so it just shows that if you build it, they will come.

"I can't get over the ticket sales - that's incredible. I thought we might trickle a few before Christmas."

Mr Coorey said the beauty of Pub Choir was it attracted a range of people who might not normally interact together.

"It is definitely appealing to generation X and the baby boomers, that older crowd - and I love it," he said.

"They haven't told me which song it is - they don't tell you until a week before the event."

The last Pub Choir was held in May, where a crowd of hundreds sang the Elton John classic Rocket Man.

Ms Jorgensen praised the Toowoomba audience for making the event such a success.

Tickets to Pub Choir are available at the website.
