‘Rehearsing for Heaven’, the world renowned A Cappella Singing workshop with global choral leader Tony Backhouse, returns to Mullumbimby on Saturday January 21st.
Open to all levels of singers, the spontaneous choir session will raise the roof, exploring traditional gospel music and related styles, in one wild afternoon.
Kiwi Tony Backhouse founded Australia’s longest running gospel, The Cafe at the Gate of Salvation, over 30 years ago, plus other small and large gospel groups all over the world. He’s taught at major musical institutions, collaborated with gospel choir leaders in American churches, Italian churches, Samoan churches, and tours singers through these authentic cultural revelations for over a decade.
But Tony is most beloved because of his absolute gift of getting folks singing in harmony, instantly, seemingly effortlessly, and always joyously!
Don’t miss this annual chance to let your voice and spirit rise, with the master, and a whole bunch of other enthusiasts!
