Short Course: Soul-stirring Gospel
With Tony Backhouse and the Café of the Gate of Salvation
If you want harmony, fun, collective improvisation and freedom of expression, then this is the workshop for you! Lead by Tony Backhouse, Australasia’s premier arranger and teacher of a cappella gospel, and featuring the Café of the Gate of Salvation, Sydney’s premier gospel choir, this workshop will focus on African-American repertoire, spirituals, gospel songs old and new, choral and quartet styles.
Participants are also invited to perform the following evening (Friday 13 July at 7.30pm) at the Theatre Royal as part of the Festival’s A Cappella Showcase Concert.
