MONICA TRAPAGA

This energetic charismatic Sydney based jazz singer wows audiences with her musical diversity. It is impossible to say where Monica’s musical influences lie. She likes the 40’s and 50’s but when she sings there’s a fresh “now” sound that is truly original. Think leopard skin, sling backs and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Think Ella, Anita, Chet Baker, Pearl Bailey and Frank… Think slinky cocktail lounge. Monica’s backing band the Bachelor Pad is the creme-de-la-crème of Australia’s jazz fraternity.
A familiar face on Australian television (Play School, Monica’s House, Better Homes and Gardens and Playhouse Disney), Monica has been part of the jazz scene for many years with her acclaimed bands Monica & the Moochers, Monica Goes to Rehab, Monica & the Sugar Daddies and Monica & Mucho Mambo Orchestra, among others.

THE IDEA OF NORTH

The ARIA award winning foursome has been wowing audiences for over 20 years with exhilarating a cappella performances heavily steeped in jazz but crossing over comfortably into pop, gospel, folk and comedy. They have a beautifully distinct sound and style, but exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe.

Touring Australia and the world for 3-4 months of each year, The Idea of North have now an extensive fan base throughout Australia, Europe and Asia, and their unique sound and incredible arrangements continue to enthral audiences wherever they go.

THE IDEA OF NORTH
“SINGIN’ A CAPPELLA” WORKSHOP

Come and join these masters of their craft as they freely impart their combined knowledge of this incredible art form. A cappella singing is one of the most difficult yet rewarding activities on the planet, and The Idea of North have decades of experience in this field, as they enter their 25th year of singing together. Their ‘Singin’ A Cappella’ workshop is packed full of information, application and phonation, and takes you on a journey through many of the aspects of the discipline these fine singers have made a career of. The Idea of North will take you through vocal warmups, four-part harmony exercises and warmups, blending, tuning and tone manipulation – and will add to your skill set more than you thought possible in just an hour and a half. They’ll take you through some techniques to challenge your brain, the way you think about singing vocal harmony, and also talk to you about aspects of your personal performance experience.

This rare opportunity for we Taswegians to experience the expertise of one of the world’s best vocal harmony groups is not one to be missed. Book early as places to this intimate instructional are limited. Get up close with The Idea of North and have them as your personal tutors in the joys of a cappella singing.
