The Idea of North are entirely deserved of their reputation as Australia's most awarded, best loved and longest running contemporary vocal group.

This multi-ARIA Award-winning ensemble will astound and move with their incredible arrangements, flawless harmonies and dry, Aussie sense of humour. You'll not only experience world-class a cappella singing, but such is the group's down-to-earth nature, you'll also leave feeling as though you've know each member of the group for years. Since originally forming in 1993, there have been only a few changes to the line up over the years, but each time the group seems to improve their sound, their blend, their musicianship, and now, as a quintet, The Idea of North is in its most exciting and versatile incarnation yet. Simply not to be missed.

Groove Sessions
The Idea Of North have added the world's most incredible jazz vocal percussionist, Kaichiro Kitamura (JAPAN) to their ranks, and for the first time since the group's inception you'll get five singers for the price of four. What Kai can do really do has to be seen, but even then you still may not believe it. Kai's virtuosity is difficult to describe, but even more difficult to not be astounded by.

He's the groove to The Idea of North's jazz, the rock to their roll - an ideal and seamless addition to the group's engaging and entrancing repertoire. This will be a memorable evening of astonishing vocalisation and heart-warming music, all presented with TION's endearing and WYSIWYG style. Don't miss this celebration of the most recent and exciting iteration of TION to date!
