Barberworkshop: Harmony Singing 101 is an a cappella music youth workshop conducted by world-renowned barbershop quartet, The Newfangled Four. Based in Los Angeles, USA, The Newfangled Four are Collegiate Quartet Champions and top 10 finalists in the 2018 BHS International Quartet Finals. The Newfangled Four are unique in their delivery of comedy barbershop music and have built a large following around the world with their performances garnering millions views on Youtube.
The Newfangled Four frequently run workshops for young singers in the USA. Most recently, they were clinicians alongside Deke Sharon (Music Director for the Pitch Perfect movies and a pioneer of the contemporary a capella style) providing education to 500 young singers.
The workshop will also be conducted by Four-time Gold Medallists, The Baden Street Singers with Nick Schurmann directing the choir on the day. Known for their barbershop musical roots, they have a varied repertoire which includes choral and contemporary works. The Baden Street Singers are excellent educators having conducted many school workshops in Perth.
This is a great opportunity for students to learn about a capella singing from world-class educators. There could even be a chance to perform with The Newfangled Four, Vocal Evolution and The Baden Street Singers on-stage at the magnificent Heath Ledger Theater!
