Music

The Idea of North. Presents.

with special guests, Brisbane Birralee Voices

Presented by TION Enterprises

That time of year is upon us once again, that so easily becomes all about how much you can do, make, buy, and wrap. But what if we were all just present?

Multi ARIA Award-winning vocal group The Idea of North returns to Brisbane with an end of year celebration in the iconic Powerhouse Theatre. You’ll hear songs you know and songs you don’t, you’ll luxuriate in the kaleidoscope of feels this group awakens in its audiences.

Joined by the youthful exuberance of the Brisbane Birralee Voices, one of Australia’s finest children’s choirs.

Reviews

Audiences have been treated to the vocal play of world-class a cappella outfit The Idea of North on many occasions over the years, but never quite like this. With the addition of acclaimed vocal percussionist Kaichiro Kitamura, The Idea of North takes its unmistakable and inimitable style to the next level.

The Advertiser

A cappella is sometimes thought of as being minimalist, but when you can sing and entertain like The Idea of North, a band would just get in the way…

James Morrison

Stunningly precise, angelic and mesmerising woven melodies with beautiful arrangements

RIP IT UP

More Info

So what is The Idea of North? In short, a quintet of musicians, serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously. With two ARIA awards under their collective belt, a significant local and international fan base, and a wonderful back-catalogue of over 10 albums, it would seem that despite their uniqueness, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs, but the best stuff actually happens live and can't be truly felt as ones and zeros, no matter how fast your internet connection is.

Emma Rule – Soprano
Naomi Crellin – Alto
Nick Begbie – Tenor
