  • 1. A so-called concert in which all of the singers sing at the same time different songs

    2.A concert in which the various singers sing their songs simultaneously, or each one sings a verse of any song he likes between bursts of some familiar chorus.

  • To call a thing “Dutch” is usually not praise. “Dutch courage” is the courage you get from a bottle of gin; a “Dutch treat” is no treat at all but an even splitting of the bill; in carpentry a “dutchman” is an awkwardly improvised repair. See more at the Wikipedia entry for “Dutch uncle.”
