Vocal ensemble workshops with ex King's Singer, Tim Wayne-Wright

Enrolments open 01 January and close 15 March, 2022

Tim was a member of the Grammy-winning a cappella vocal ensemble, The King’s Singers, for 10 years. He was fortunate enough to tour the world, singing over 1500 concerts in some of the world’s greatest venues. Tim has taught over 500 masterclasses and workshops, imparting chamber music skills and techniques to choirs and instrumentalists across the globe. Since leaving The King’s Singers in 2018, he continues to thrive as part of the choral scene internationally. Tim is the Artistic Director of CHORALSPACE's Berlin Winter and Summer Festivals, 2021 – 2023. He also manages an exciting roster of artists and holds consultancy roles with vocal ensembles in both UK and Canada. Tim loves the opportunity to adjudicate choral competitions and to coach choirs of all sizes, taking great pleasure from working with musicians of all ages and ability. In March 2021, he emigrated to New Zealand with his Kiwi wife and two children. Tim is absolutely thrilled to call Aotearoa home, and delighted to be coaching so many wonderful performers across the country.

"Singing together is a wonderful experience. The sense of camaraderie brings joy to so many, and I'm thrilled for the opportunity to be launching my inaugural A Cappella Academy at the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts in April next year. At this unique event, I'll be coaching vocal ensembles on their chosen repertoire, giving them the tools to become more accomplished a cappella singers. The workshops will also give each participant a real insight into new techniques - how to become enhanced story-tellers, communicators and how to truly engage with an audience. Looking forward to seeing you there!"
