Thursday nights - Gospel with Phia and Melbourne Indie Voices
Amy Winehouse has described her musical evolution as moving from Jazz, to Soul, through to Gospel, then Motown and finally Hip-Hop. As part of the exhibition, we present a series of evenings that traverse Amy’s vast musical journey, digging a little deeper into the styles of music that informed her complex writing, composition, melody and voice.
“I love gospel, because gospel is so truthful. You know, I’m not religious, but there is nothing more pure than the relationship you have with your God –there is nothing stronger than that apart from your love of music. Gospel is very inspirational.” In a fun and easy choir-singing workshop, local indie-pop singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Phia (Sophia Exiner) and Melbourne Indie Voices will teach you to sing Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. Learn to sing in the spirit of gospel music alongside this much loved Melbourne choir. Workshop starts at 6.15pm, followed by performance at 7.30pm.
Thursday Nights are brought to you by us and Hear Them Holler.
