The Idea of North


The Idea of North

Hunter Theatre Broadmeadow
Thursday, 22 June 2017

The Idea of North – Australia’s premier A Capella group – are coming to Newcastle to conduct vocal workshops with the local primary and secondary students. But they will also perform two concert at the Hunter Theatre Broadmeadow this Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd from 7.30pm. Tickets are just $35 and available from the Hunter School of Performing Arts webite.

The Idea of North is an ARIA award winning vocal group who formed in the 90’s when they studied music together in Canberra. Today, they are as much in demand for their vocal workshops as their seamless and good natured performances.

Their instrumentation: voice (soprano), voice (alto), voice (tenor) and voice (bass), with a little bit of vocal percussion thrown in. They have a beautifully distinct sound and style, but they cross many musical genres: jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy – exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe. With twelve albums in the catalogue, a significant local and international fan base, and increasingly regular local and international work, it would seem that despite the difficulty, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs (some of them award-winning), but the best stuff actually happens live and can’t be recorded onto plastic, no matter how shiny it is.
