Treat yourself to a weekend of singing led by composer Sue Johnson to recharge your mind, body and spirit. Sue leads with expertise, warmth and passion, teaching songs with groove and connection. Bookings Essential :
.........."Sue Johnson’s heartfelt tribute ‘I Am Your Grandmother’ is as good as anything I have heard by Sweet Honey in the Rock."...... ABC Limelight Magazine November 2007
The sessions are about tuning in to your voice - and connecting to others. Enjoying songs in harmony, the rich layering of sound and rhythm, chants and instant pieces with massed voices, as well as warm ups and breathing exercises. Scores will be used in addition to aural learning - the ability to read music not necessary.
......"One of the most mesmerising songs… is a composition by Sue Johnson called Sister My Sister … part lullaby, part prayer, part celebration of the human voice...." The Age 2004
Composer SUE JOHNSON co-founded vocal group Coco’s Lunch, producing seven award-winning CDs of vocal music for adults and children and touring internationally for over two decades. In 2021 Sue is directing a singing tour to Goa in India by invitation from Soundtracks Travel. Her songs are sung and recorded by choirs worldwide and have been sung by numerous USA all-state chorus’. She directs four Melbourne choirs and tutors at Melbourne University and Melbourne Polytechnic.
.......‘All The Wild Wonders’ (easily one of their (Coco’s Lunch) runaway hits, with lyrics by author and poet Elizabeth Honey) was perhaps one of the most moving compositions heard at the Fest so far."..... The Hindu, Chennai November Fest, India 2013
