Two Great Music Events with WASO
Celebrate the start of the holiday season with Australia's leading vocal quartet.

The Idea of North who are multi-ARIA award winners are renowned for their delightful, clear singing voices and style. They sing many musical genres, from jazz to folk, gospel, pop and classical.

They now have twelve albums out, and heaps of local and international fans, and I believe them to be one of this country's very exciting and productive vocal groups. This will be their first ever concert with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) and they will sing Christmas songs and music from around the world - including your favourite holiday tunes!

Their harmonies are delightful and this talented group bring good old-fashioned fun to the stage, as they and WASO, welcome in this holiday season.

The Sydney Morning Herald say: "The Idea of North are one of Australia's brightest cultural treasures. Go and see for yourself what the international fuss is about."

They are musicians who are serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously! Their instrumentation: voice (soprano), voice (alto), voice (tenor) and voice (bass), with a little bit of vocal percussion thrown in.

Their sound is unique as is their style and they are also humorous.

Included in the group are:
Emma Rule, soprano
Naomi Crellin, alto
Nick Begbie, tenor
Luke Thompson, bass
Kai Kitamura, vocal percussion/baritone
Benjamin Northey, conductor
