The Finns have a word for it - "Valituskuoro". It means "Complaints Choir" and refers to occassions where a lot of people are complaining simultaneously. The idea for a Complaints Choir was dreamt up by two artists based in Finland. Now there's an evergrowing number of Complaints Choirs around the world inviting people to sing their coplaints out loud together with fellow complainers. The first choir was organised in Birmingham followed by the Complaints Choirs of Helsinki, Hamburg and St. Petersburg.
Voice coach, Beth Allen and music designer Karen McIver will be holding a Complaints Choir Workshop at The Lowry in Salford. They join Jenni to perform some Christmas moans and groans from the Woman's Hour messagebaord.
