Tim Wayne-Wright

Learn from a former King’s Singer – includes performance as part of headline concert




Under the expert tuition of former King’s Singer, Tim Wayne-Wright, you will examine and learn what it truly means to be an ensemble singer. Tim will cover the main issues and hurdles that every choir faces – from vowel matching to using vocal colours, all of the key elements of good ensemble singing will be explained and explored. Enjoy perfecting your a cappella singing skills as you craft a range of repertoire, from the Renaissance era right through to contemporary music.

Both individuals and choirs are welcome to take part in this fascinating journey through the glorious world of a cappella singing! This will be a special course that will take your ensemble singing skills to a new level.

Tim Wayne-Wright

Tim Wayne-Wright has toured the world, sharing the stage with Grammy-winning a cappella vocal ensemble, The King’s Singers for 10 years. He has sung over 1500 concerts in some of the world’s greatest venues and taught over 500 masterclasses and workshops, imparting chamber music skills and techniques to choirs and instrumentalists across the globe. Since leaving The King’s Singers in 2018, he continues to thrive as part of the choral scene internationally.

Tim is the Artistic Director of CHORALSPACE’s Berlin Winter and Summer Festivals in 2021 – 2023. He is a choral adjudicator, vocal ensemble consultant and, also manages an exciting roster of young artists in both UK and Canada. In March 2021, he emigrated to New Zealand with his wife and children and we are delighted to welcome him to Hobart for the first time.

Singing together is a wonderful experience. The sense of camaraderie brings joy to so many, and I’m thrilled for the opportunity to be leading choral workshops in Hobart next year, in collaboration with the remarkable Festival of Voices. At this unique event, I’ll be coaching participants in a variety of repertoire, giving them the tools to become more accomplished a cappella vocal ensemble singers. Looking forward to seeing you there!  – Tim Wayne-Wright
