Stephen Taberner to lead The Big Sing
A master of extracting the voice of each choir member and arranging large groups of singers with finesse; Stephen Taberner
will be joining us this year to lead The Big Sing!
You may be familiar with Stephen as a result of his work with the Spooky Men’s Chorale. Aside from that, he’s pretty much just your average Melbourne based singing, songwriting, double bass playing, choir leader with a passion for keyboards, drum kits, pygmy jam sessions, flash mobs, and pointlessly grandiose male singing projects.
As well as traveling to festivals and learning songs from Bulgarians, Georgians, South Africans and Tanzanians, Stephen discovered a love for teaching singing which led to the establishment of his first community choir in 1993.
In 1996 and 1998 Stephen was co-director of the Choral Sea, a singing event at Sydney’s Town Hall with over 700 participants. Stephen also became a highly sought choir and workshop leader, facilitating workshops throughout Australasia.
Expect fun, light-hearted engagement in a joyful mass singing experience with Stephen at the helm.
Stephen will be involved in performances, workshops, panel discussions as well as leading The Big Sing!
