The Idea of North: singing a cappella workshop

Regarded by its peers as one of the best and most unique live musical acts in Australia, The Idea of North has truly reinvented a cappella and taken it to new heights.

This fully professional vocal group brings to The Noosa Longweekend a unique opportunity to discover how singing in harmony is created.

The quartet has designed a workshop where all participants can learn those skills through warm-up exercises, pitching and blending techniques, harmony making and song arrangement.

This workshop will be a joy for anyone who loves to sing, can hold a note, has an ear for - or can read music, or has just always longed to sing a cappella.

The Idea of North singers: Sally Cameron, soprano; Nick Begbie, tenor; Naomi Crellin, alto; and Andrew Piper, bass will of course treat you to their own magnificent singing. And you - will be able to sing your hearts out!

Saturday 12 2.00pm $25 Good Shepherd Lutheran Centre
