This is a great opportunity for new and experienced singers to ‘jump in and sing out’ with Tony Backhouse. We are delighted to have Tony back in New Zealand and in Hawkes Bay for this weekend workshop in beautiful Napier!

Composer, vocal arranger and singer Tony Backhouse is one of the leaders in the Australasian Acappella movement.

Tony works with the passionate and exciting African- American repertoire which focuses on spirituals, gospel songs old and new and choral and quartet styles. He also embraces South African church songs, doo-wop, R&B and pop. The emphasis is on harmony, collective improvisation and freedom of expression. No music- reading skills are required, and you may record the sessions.

“Instant choir. Would you believe that you could take upwards of 50 people who had never got together before and create a great-sounding choir harmonising in 4 parts, singing songs they had never heard before? Not only possible, but joyously successful. The buzz ... was in the air for the whole weekend. The only other ways I can think of to get this kind of thrill are the extreme sports.”
Alison Winkworth, Voiceprint (Australian Voice Association).
