Singers, release your inner rock star and lounge room air-guitarist! In this 3 hour workshop, former Sydney choir director, vocal arranger and rock music fan Linda Calgaro will form us into an Acappella rock ensemble. You’ll learn songs and vocal techniques that Linda uses with her comedy rock ‘choir’ Rocktapus! (soon to be formed in Nelson).

It will be quirky, stupid, and very rock’n’roll. Experienced singers - such as Nelson choir members, lounge-room air guitarists, and hair brush soloists - preferred. Wearing of spandex is discouraged.

Linda Calgaro is an ex-Sydney, now Nelson-based, Improv actor, director, musician and workshop leader. Linda has been prominent in the Sydney Acappella movement for over 15 years and the world of Improv theatre for 12.

Linda was the vocal arranger and director for her own community gospel choir Glory Bound Groove Train (1997-2013) and for eight years was a member of the acclaimed Café of the Gate of Salvation gospel choir (led by Tony Backhouse) as well as the world music ensemble Voices From the Vacant Lot.

She is the vocal arranger & director of Rocktapus! the Acappella, rock/comedy performance ‘choir’ (Sydney Fringe Festival 2010 and 2011) which is soon to start in Nelson. She leads workshops in singing and performance, improv and improvised singing jams in Australia and overseas and is the Artistic Director of Nelson’s own Off the Cuff Improv theatre ensemble.
