OPEN CREWS 

 

Our Open Crews are our non-auditioned vocal groups, and are the perfect space to build confidence and just have a go!  

The main focus of these classes is to introduce singers to the basic elements of singing and contemporary a cappella, such as vocal technique, score reading, tuning, teamwork and confidence - all while singing some seriously great music!!!

All Open Crew vocalists have the opportunity to perform in our End of Semester Shows.

ADULT OPEN CLASS!

 

Brand new for 2018 we now have an Open Class for adult singers who are keen to gain new vocal skills and try contemporary a cappella!

We work to build confidence as well as skill, and we make sure it's all delivered in the vibrant, fun format of contemporary a cappella! 

Open Class runs for a Semester (2 terms) with 8 classes per term. It's an ideal space for keen singers of all stages; from new singers wanting to build a solid vocal foundation, through to experienced vocalists who want to try something a bit different and expand their skillset.

WHO:  17+
WHEN:  Mondays, 5:30pm - 6:30pm
WHERE:  BeatBox Studios, 270 St Asaph St

One of the keys to contemporary a cappella is that it's a team sport, meaning that you're reliant on those around you in their contribution to the overall delivery, so a big focus of Open Class is on learning what it means to sing together as a team. Because it's an Open Class we work at a pace that suits the class as a whole, and while there's no requirement to take part in any performances we do offer the option to participate in our Academy Shows (July/Dec) for those that feel up to the challenge! 

Main details: Open Class is non-auditioned and open to anyone over the age of 17 who loves to sing, who wants to develop their vocal skills, or who just wants to give contemporary a cappella a whirl!


SQUADS

Our Squads are smaller ensembles of auditioned vocalists, and are for singers with a bit more experience, or students that are ready to progress from our Open Crews.  

Squads often only have 1 or 2 voices to a part. Building on the skills from our Open Crews the main focus for a Squad is on preparing music to a high performance level. Squads train weekly, with additional rehearsals ahead of a performance (in Terms 2 and 4). As well as showcasing their work in our End of Semester Shows, our Squads are often asked to perform at events around the city.

In 2017 our Youth Squad toured with Ali Harper, our Adult Squad performed at the Christmas For The City festival, and our Performance Squad were crowned the winners of TVNZ's reality a cappella competition 'The Naked Choir' taking the title of 'NZ's Best A Cappella Group'!
