Cloudehill is privileged to present
The Idea of North
"Carols and Beyond"
Cloudehill is privileged to present ARIA Award Winning, The Idea of North, a Twilight recital in the Cloudehill Green Theatre. A fundraising evening of Christmas Carols and more by the multi award-winning a cappella group The Idea of North on behalf of the Hush Foundation.
So what is The Idea of North?
In short, a quintet of musicians, serious about their music without taking themselves too seriously. Now with the incredible Kai Kitamura on vocal percussion, Australia's most highly awarded and best loved contemporary a cappella group has a beautifully distinct sound and style, but crosses many musical genres: jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy - exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe, but we're certain you'll love it.
With two ARIA awards under their collective belt, a significant local and international fan base, and a wonderful back-catalogue of over 10 albums, it would seem that despite their uniqueness, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CDs, but the best stuff actually happens live and can't be truly felt as ones and zeros, no matter how fast your internet connection is. Find out more >
About the Hush Foundation
The Hush Foundation was established in 2000 by highly awarded and renowned physician, Dr. Catherine Crock AM, in response to her work with children undergoing painful medical procedures at The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne. Working alongside anaesthetists in the development of new pain relief systems for these young patients, Dr. Crock sought to reduce the stress and anxiety felt by patients, families and staff.
Additional research was undertaken to transform the environment of the operating theatre and recovery rooms through the use of especially composed music from some of Australia’s foremost musicians and composers. The music helps evoke a sense of calm and optimism. Since then, the work of Hush has expanded to encompass the culture of the system itself, and what can be done to improve the experience for patients, families and healthcare professionals.

Regulars to our twilight events know to come early. We recommend arriving 5pm, perhaps 5.30. Bring a picnic and bottle of wine, low fold-up (beach) chairs & spare warm clothing (just in case). Over the years we have found low evening light is the loveliest time to explore the gardens and a twilight performance in the theatre makes the occasion very special.
