Unique sound, rich harmonies and flawless intonation: this is why the Berlin vocal ensemble GANZ A Cappella is celebrated in Germany and Europe. The six classically trained singers come from different corners of the world - Germany, Australia and New Zealand - and together they sing a diverse repertoire of classical music, from Monteverdi to Gjeilo.
They also perform their very own interpretations and unusual a cappella arrangements of modern and contemporary pop and rock hits; including artists like Leonard Cohen and Adele.
It all started in Brisbane who Australian east coast metropolis, as soprano Annabelle, mezzo-soprano Anna and tenor Shannon met while studying singing at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. After graduating, the three Australians initially went their separate ways to pursue their solo careers around the globe.
Sooner or later the three found each other again in the European music metropolis and her new adopted home Berlin. Here Anna studied for her Masters at the UdK, where she met the New Zealand soprano Polly and the bass Konstantin from Germany in a student choir. Together there was a certain something that they felt while singing together and they met more often in the constellation from which GANZ A Cappella would later emerge. When they got to know the wonderful baritone Robert Elibay-Hartog and his voice, they had found the last missing icing on the cake and added him to the group.
The finding of a name for the young group came about by a happy coincidence, because the name says it all and the program is name: Germany, Australia and New Zealand are the home countries of the six members and they perform completely a cappella; as if they were meant for each other.
GANZ A Cappella performs regularly at concerts, official occasions, events or house concerts and receptions with a fresh and original interpretation of a wide repertoire of classical and modern music.
