The Idea of North has always been renowned for their exceptional ability to connect musically and emotionally with an audience. They take songs people know and songs they don’t and tell the stories through their enviably imaginative and arresting vocal arrangements – all without touching an instrument.

Although their instrumentation is all voices, this is far from the point of the show. The Idea of North will help you forget there are no instruments with their exceptional delivery of their wonderfully created repertoire, their relaxed and easy rapport with the audience, and the depth of their connection to the stories they sing. If you think you know the limits of what the human voice can create, then hearing and experiencing this astounding group will make you think again.

Come and have these five exceptional singers pour theirs and others’ hearts out in song – this moving performance is both amusing, heartbreaking and beautifully uplifting all at once. A wonderfully emotional, musical journey.

City Recital Hall

2 Angel Place
Sydney, 2000

All ages

The Idea of North is a world class a cappella quintet, who are serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously. Now with the incredible Kai Kitamura on vocal percussion, Australia's most highly-awarded and best-loved contemporary a cappella group perform with a distinct sound and style that crosses many musical genres including jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical and comedy.

For the first time, City Recital Hall will be presenting a full length performance in which the group will explore vocal harmony throughout the centuries. Think Gregorian Chant, Bach, Madrigals and the Andrew Sisters and topped off with some contemporary harmony-laden classics.

But first, discard your preconceptions of what you may experience in this deep dive into the history of vocal harmony. The Idea of North have finely-tuned their good old-fashioned self-deprecating Australian charm and will lure you into learning about five centuries of vocal music without you even noticing. Delve into the golden era of the Baroque, stroll through the age of enlightenment, sway across the velvety jazz era and bop along to the more recent era of pop and rock – but none of it is as you have ever heard before!

With copious amounts of “wit, charm and breath-taking musical virtuosity” (The Adelaide Advertiser), The Idea of North will demonstrate their “impeccable standard of musicianship” (The Melbourne Age) in this one night only of vocal harmony histrionics - a musical experience you’ll remember for years.
