Legendary Jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald famously said, that the only thing better than singing is more singing. Recent health studies agree with the Jazz diva, claiming, that singing delivers a host of physical and emotional benefits, and while the scientists agree that singing alone is good for you, their research found that singing in a choir is even better.
Choralfest Northern Rivers 2014 promises to be a spectacular weekend of singing out loud over the June long weekend in Lismore, that is set to uplift mind, body and soul.
Choralfest will feature a host of dynamic workshops, community choir concerts, fine feasting and inspiring performances, starring Australia’s premier a cappella ensemble ‘The Idea of North’.
The Northern Rivers Conservatorium community is proud and excited to be hosting some of the country’s finest performers, conductors and educators specialising in voice, including Parissa Bouas, Ann Bermingham, Suze Pratten, Imogen Wolf, Brian Martin and ‘The Idea of North’.
Choralfest is such great opportunity for individuals and community choirs to learn from incredible practitioners in conducting, vocal and rhythm techniques and to be immersed in a weekend of singing that will uplift and entertain.
Choralfest is a celebration for all ages, musical abilities and interests and performances and workshops with ‘The Idea of North” are not to be missed.
We’re so lucky to have The Idea Of North return to Choralfest. They’re not only the best a cappella ensemble in Australia, but they’re also the funniest a cappella ensemble in the world.
“They dazzled our younger audiences last year. Teenagers and young kids, can be really tough audiences, but they were falling about laughing so hard and calling out for encore after encore. Choralfest is for the whole family,” said Executive Director, Anita Bellman.
Choralfest 2014 workshops and performances are proudly supported by The Department of Education and Communities and Arts NSW, and take place across two venues on Saturday June 7 and Sunday June 8 at The Lismore City Hall and The Northern Rivers Conservatorium.
