South Coast Sings 2016

A weekend workshop with Rachel Hore and Stephen Taberner

4th - 6th May 2018, BOOKINGS NOW OPEN.

A weekend of song in the bush on the South Coast of NSW with close to 100 singers under the direction of two of Australia’s most respected choral conductors, Rachel Hore and Stephen Taberner, makes for a very special retreat. Each day will be structured around singing sessions and time to relax. You may want to start your day with a paddle on the lake, catching a wave, go for a walk through the bush or on the beach or enjoy a yoga session led by Amy Hubers.

Our home for the weekend is the Kioloa Coastal Campus of the ANU, beautifully located on pristine bushland between Kioloa and Bawley Point villages. Accommodation is dormitory style.

Rachel and Stephen are both widely known throughout the Australian a cappella community and beyond for their exciting and inspiring teaching styles, their funky choral arrangements and unique compositions. They are expertly skilled at bringing the best out of a group of singers, experienced and beginners alike.
