In October of 2019 Anders Nyberg, the internationally acclaimed composer/choir director/writer and Oscar nominated co-author of the critically acclaimed Swedish move AS IT IS IN HEAVEN will conduct one-off workshop in Melbourne and Sydney.
It might be that you don’t know the name Anders Nyberg, however it might also be that your love of singing will have been influenced in some ways by his work.
As well as a musical career that stretches for over 40 years as a songwriter, arranger and choir director, Anders co-wrote the Swedish movie As It Is In Heaven, a musical & cultural phenomenon that charged the Australian choral scene.
It might be that you have been influenced by his music, so popular in the Melbourne choral scene, notably Freedom is Coming - Songs of Protest and Praise from South Africa.
Over a Friday night and two full days on Saturday and Sunday, you will be immersed in styles that range from Swedish, African and contemporary, as well as being treated to a talk on the writing and production of As It Is In Heaven.
Anders will be supported by renowned Melbourne Choir Director Sue Johnson. The workshop will be held in the Linen Room of the famous Abbortsford Gardens.
