Dave Stringer Australian Tour




Kirtan Evenings & Workshops
with Dave Stringer & Band

Tuesday 22 February – Thursday 4 April

Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth & Maraylya

Dave Stringer has been widely profiled in publications all over the world as one of the most innovative artists of the new Kirtan movement. Stringer’s sound marries the transcendent mysticism of traditional Indian instruments with the exuberant, groove-oriented sensibility of American gospel.

Initially trained as a visual artist, filmmaker and jazz musician, Stringer’s work underwent a significant shift when video editing work brought him to an ashram in Ganeshpuri, India in 1990. Subsequent periods of service teaching meditation to prison inmates expanded his interest and research in neuroscience.

“A departure from ancient kirtan.  Dave Stringer’s performance shaped the experience into a far more compelling musical encounter.”

Singfest on the Gold Coast

Thursday 23 August – Sunday 26 August

SingFest is an aCappella choral festival held on Australia’s Gold Coast every two years. The cream of Australia’s choral groups, vocal bands, aCappela ensembles, quartets and school choirs, converge for a weekend of aCappella vocal harmony.

The program is based around a series of concerts by choirs and ensembles. Each group strives to entertain the audience and it’s peers with a performance set approximately 20minutes in length. A single concert consists of 8-10 groups and the general public is invited to attend.

Registration entitles singers to perform in the concert series as well as to attend an extensive series of workshops where they can hone their craft as well as just have some fun. There are casual performance opportunities outside of the concert series at the Chorditorium during the social activities.
