Perth Heritage Days: Choir Performance
Spooky Men of the West
This mysterious male voice choir is a cultish, boofy, black-clad behemoth of blokes who love (and live) to sing. Inspired by the Georgian male voice tradition, the choir’s repertoire ranges from traditional Georgian songs to surprising covers.
Eneksis is an exciting vocal ensemble based at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). The choir, directed by Micheál McCarthy, consists mainly of students of the Classical Music Department of WAAPA. The choir aims to provide students with a valuable experience in high quality choral singing and to add to their appreciation of quality musical performance.
Date: Sunday 19 October
Time: 11.45am - 2.30pm
Location: Art Gallery of WA
