12th World Symposium on Choral Music

The Idea of North


Country: Australia
Musical Director: Naomi Crellin
Voicing: SATB


An ensemble renowned for their well-crafted sound, inimitable style and sense of fun, The Idea of North is Australia's most highly awarded and best-loved contemporary a cappella group. The choral quintet's music crosses many musical genres, including jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical and comedy.

With two ARIA awards under their belt, a significant local and international fan base, and a wonderful back-catalogue of over 10 albums, it would seem that their unique style has won hearts all over the world.

“Audiences have been treated to the vocal play of world-class a cappella outfit The Idea of North on many occasions over the years, but never quite like this. With the addition of acclaimed vocal percussionist Kaichiro Kitamura, The Idea of North takes its unmistakable and inimitable style to the next level.” - The Advertiser

“A cappella is sometimes thought of as being minimalist, but when you can sing and entertain like The Idea of North, a band would just get in the way." - James Morrison

"Stunningly precise, angelic and mesmerising woven melodies with beautiful arrangements" ★★★★★ - RIP IT UP
