In October of 2019 Anders Nyberg, internationally acclaimed composer, choir director and Oscar nominated songwriter of As It Is In Heaven, will conduct an exclusive one-off workshop in Melbourne at one of the city's most beautiful venues, Abbotsford Convent. Suitable for dedicated choristers and beginners alike, this is a rare opportunity to learn choral technique from one of the worlds great masters.
As well as a musical career that stretches for over 40 years as a songwriter, arranger and choir director, Anders is best known in Australia for the Oscar nominated film he co-wrote, As It Is In Heaven. This was a musical and cultural phenomenon in the Australian choral scene and beyond.

His work is likewise well known and loved in the Victorian choral scene, notably Freedom is Coming – Songs of Protest and Praise from South Africa.
Over one weekend, you will be immersed in learning and singing musical styles that range from Swedish, African and contemporary with Anders Nyberg as your guide, as well as being treated to a talk on the writing and production of As It Is In Heaven.
For the workshops, Nyberg will be supported by renowned Melbourne Choir Director Sue Johnson.
