Sounds Excellent 2018 (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Monday 15th October 2018

Enjoy an evening showcasing some of Nelson’s finest choirs and singer-songwriters.

Nelson Bays Harmony continues to perfect its barbershop sound under the direction of Kathy Jamieson. Singing traditional barbershop songs as well as contemporary arrangements, their full and vibrant sound reaches to the heart.

Under the direction of Shannel Courtney, Mosaic brings energy and vibrancy to a cappella music from around the world. Nelson youth choir Young Voices, directed by Zoe Bennett, performs both classical and contemporary music.

The evening also features two singer-songwriters: Brooklyn Scott who won the solo/duo category of the 2017 Nelson Smokefreerockquest competition, was a finalist in the national Smokefreerockquest contest, and has also won local country music awards; Bryce Wastney, whose sound has been likened to Neil Finn and Cat Stevens, mixes humour with heart-felt examples from his own life in his smooth acoustic story-telling style.

Whether a cappella harmony, traditional choral or solo, these performers have the passion and dedication that turns talent into excellence.

Welcome to Sounds Excellent 2018!

Proudly presented by the Nelson Arts Festival.
