‘One minute we were a circle of strangers all staring at each other. Ten minutes later we were a throng of joyful singers revelling in some of the most glorious harmony singing of my life. What Tony offers is stunning.’
— Clare Grayson, activist (UK)

A cappella gospel with Tony Backhouse – Tony has led ten gospel tours to the USA to participate in the African American church tradition. He has run vocal workshops in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Canada, France, Italy, Fiji and Samoa. Tony works with the passionate and exciting African-American repertoire, focusing on spirituals, gospel songs old and new, choral and quartet styles, and embracing South African church songs, and often doo-wop, R&B and pop. The emphasis is on harmony, collective improvisation and freedom of expression.

No music-reading skills are required, and you may record the sessions.
