FESTIVAL OF VOICES
8th to 15th July 2018
Our visit to Hobart for the Festival of Voices in July is getting closer and our preparations are underway. We have a program of songs ready to sing at various Pop Up and Singers’ Lounge performances, we may even appear at the Sing@5 series of concerts planned for the Festival.
Many of our travellers will be attending a major workshop being held by Deke Sharon, world renowned a cappella singer, teacher, producer, director and arranger from the United States.
Deke Sharon has his a cappella fingers in many pies, arranging (Broadway’s “In Transit”), music directing movies (Pitch Perfect 1, 2 & 3), and producing television’s “The Sing Off” (US, Holland, China, South Africa), music directing BBC’s “Pitch Battle”, directing professional groups (Vocalosity), performing (TotalVocal at Carnegie Hall), coaching (Lifetime’s “Pitch Slapped”) producing albums (Straight No Chaser) and events (Camp A Cappella), publishing arrangements with Hal Leonard, while teaching and promoting a cappella worldwide.
The other major workshop is being conducted by David Lawrence, and is a classical choral workshop learning the remarkable masterpiece of Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem, performed in the original language.
We are looking forward to our trip to Tasmania this year, singers are welcome to come along to one of our rehearsals at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre on a Wednesday night from 6 pm Qld time and see if you would like to join us for our musical journey to the Apple Isle in July.
