2018 香港國際無伴奏合唱節表演嘉賓

Hong Kong International a cappella Festival Guest Performers

Accent

In the increasingly popular world of a cappella singing groups, Accent has carved out its own niche. Inspired by the wizardly jazz harmonies of TAKE 6 and, before them, The Hi-Lo’s, the six men of Accent, all of them accomplished arrangers and instrumentalists in their own right, decided to take their love of close-harmony jazz singing – the denser and more intricate the better – as far as it could go. Accent is six singer/arrangers, all of whom have considerable musical careers in their home countries: Jean-Baptiste (“JB”) Craipeau (France) – tenor 1; Simon Åkesson (Sweden) – tenor 2; Danny Fong (Canada) – tenor 3; Andrew Kesler (Canada) – tenor 4; James Rose (United Kingdom) – baritone; and Evan Sanders (USA) – bass. Having originally met and recorded together via the Internet, they have since come together to record and tour, becoming an international vocal supergroup. 

 

縱有越來越多無伴奏歌唱組合出現, Accent 憑其獨特演繹,成功闖出一片天。深受兩位無伴奏界前輩TAKE 6The Hi-Lo’s啟發,Accent編曲滿帶著趣怪的爵士和聲,加上成員均有深厚無伴奏編曲及樂器背景,隊伍定當竭盡所能,在台上展現出他們熱愛的爵士樂細膩和弦。Accent 由六名歌手/編曲者組成,各人在自己的家鄉均已建立亮眼的音樂事業,成員包括男高音一 Jean-Baptiste (“JB”) Craipeau(法國)、男高音二 Simon Åkesson(瑞典)、男高音三 Danny Fong(加拿大)、男高音四 Andrew Kesler(加拿大)、男中音 James Rose(英國)及男低音 Evan Sanders(美國)。六人本在網上合作,製作出的跨國音樂錄像製作獲得一致好評,決定聚首為作品錄音及於各地巡迴演出,成為了一隊國際知名人聲組合。

The Nor'easters (US 美國)

The Nor'easters are a co-ed a Cappella group from Northeastern University in Boston. As the oldest group on campus, the Nor'easters strive to maintain the highest standards of musicality, while keeping their fun- loving family spirit alive. They had the honor of being named ICCA champions in 2017, 2013, and Wildcard champions in 2015. They have performed all over the world, including the White House for the President and First Lady's Christmas Gala, as well as Australia to promote PopTV's reality docu-series, "Sing It On." This past year, the group focused its energies on creating its sixth studio album, COLLECTIVE, Vol. 1 which served as the follow up to their award-winning album, RISE released in 2016.

男女混聲無伴奏隊伍 The Nor'easters成立於美國波士頓的東北大學 (Northeastern University) ,作為校內最資深之音樂團體,The Nor’easters一方面致力維持成員有高水平的音樂造詣,同時又傳承了活潑愛玩的家族精神。他們於國際學院式無伴奏合唱錦標賽 (ICCA) 成績斐然,曾於2015 年榮獲 Wildcard 冠軍,及於 2013 年和 2017 年奪得總冠軍。隊伍有豐富演出經驗,舞台已遍佈全球,包括於美國白宮為總統演出、於第一夫人聖誕晚會上獻唱及於澳洲PopTV 電視台為國際知名無伴奏節目《Sing It On》寫實紀錄片作宣傳。2016 年The Nor’easters憑無伴奏專輯《RISE》獲得美國當代無伴奏協會頒發最佳專業學院類編曲及最佳混聲學院類樂曲,過去一年他們專注製作第六張錄音室專輯《COLLECTIVE, Vol. 1》作為後續,並成功於2017年12月推出。
