VOCES8’s long-awaited debut tour to Australia begins this week. Their first concert is a recital at the Sydney Opera House, after which they work with conductor Benjamin Bayl and the student instrumentalists of ANAM in a performance of Bach’s B Minor Mass at the Melbourne Recital Centre. To end the trip they perform twice at Ukaria in Adelaide.
Tickets for the Melbourne performance are still available, with all other concerts sold out.
Alongside this schedule Paul Smith will be giving workshops either with VOCES8 or by himself, in a mixture of sessions based on the VOCES8 Method, of which he is the author, and also working on pieces prepared by choirs. He will be leading a workshop at Sydney Opera House before travelling to Perth to work with Voyces Incorporated. He also gives sessions hosted by Firbank Grammar School, Melbourne and Immanuel College, Adelaide.
