Making Music in Italy – 7-22 September 2024
A sensational singing holiday with Tony Backhouse, Edoardo Materassi and Guerrino Parri in 3 gorgeous locations.
Imagine this: Two weeks singing in beautiful surroundings with 30 or more singers and two amazing Italian conductors? Big tick. Prosecco, pizza, prosciutto, pecorino, parties? Another big tick. Beautiful music and great local bands entertaining us at dinner? Choirs combining to share repertoire and culture? Staying in palazzo’s and villas in Tuscany and Le Marche and a convent with a quiet garden sanctuary in the centre of Florence.
A cappella choir in Fiji – May 28-June 4 2024
I’m running the week-long course at the lovely First Landing Beach Resort on the main island, Viti Levu. We’ll sing every day, hang out at the beach, eat good food, visit local choirs and villages, exchange songs and just be plain relaxed and creative. My friend Andrew Davis, who grew up in Fiji, has put this event together; he has previously run very successful singing tours to Fiji with Rachel Hore (BigSing Community) and Tina Broad (the Glorious MUDsingers)
Due to high demand, an additional week-long singing tour has now been added to the calendar: A cappella choir in Fiji August 6-13 2024.

The 2023 Singing & Yoga in Ubud retreat was such a beautiful and fulfilling event we feel compelled to repeat it: a joyous week of singing and yoga in Bali led by Tony Backhouse and yoga teacher Josie Tanham, and staying at the tranquil Narasoma retreat, an oasis in the heart of Ubud.
Josie Tanham is a senior teacher with Yoga Australia, with over 30 years experience. Her sessions will cater for all levels of experience and ability. Similarly, Tony’s sessions are for everyone no matter what their level of singing experience.
