A Cappella Workshop with Matthew Gifford

Back by popular demand, Matthew Gifford will be leading the 2019 major A Cappella workshop.

“Matt’s choral leadership is transforming – his energy and “feel for the music” are infused into singers so that emotional connection with an audience is guaranteed. It would be difficult to find a peer with such strong appreciation of the phrasing and dynamics that truly bring a song to life.” Jim McCormack, TAS

A world champion quartet bass singer, internationally acclaimed coach and clinician, certified judge, television personality, and inspirational speaker and flag-bearer for vocal music.  He has worked in New Zealand, Australia, USA, Canada, China, Japan, Spain, England, Sweden, Holland, Germany, South Korea, and the South Pacific.  Matthew loves to harness the power of music with a broad audience of fellow music lovers and passionate musicians alike.

“Matt is a master of dynamics and was able to polish our final works into beautiful performances. He added a real finesse to the works we were learning. Great conducting and really got the heart and meaning into the song”Lorraine Mars, TAS
