Spooky Men's Chorale comes to town
Published on 09 February 2018
They are a skilful mix of faultless vocal expertise, maverick abandon, serious fun and humour and they're not to be missed. The Spooky Men's Chorale is coming to the Manning Entertainment Centre on Sunday 25 February.
Critically acclaimed everywhere from Woodford to WOMADelaide, through to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Cambridge, the group that formed 17 years ago in the Blue Mountains has recorded six albums and toured the world, performing over 560 gigs since 2001 to more than 250,000 people.
Described as a vast, rumbling, steam powered vocal behemoth with a combination of Georgian table songs, pin-drop beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers and immaculate man anthems, they've charmed international audiences armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in their eye.
Before the performance on Sunday 25 February at 2pm, Spooky Men's Chorale "chief spook" Stephen Taberner will provide an opportunity for the MidCoast's budding vocalists to learn from one of the world's most accomplished choral leaders. The workshop kicks off from 10.30am - 12.30pm, and cost is $30 for workshop only, or a special discount ticket of $60 for both workshop and show.
