Directed by powerhouse Liona Tatafu, HALO Vocal Ensemble features a diverse lineup of artists from different communities across Melbourne to perform collaboratively & simultaneously on one stage. The ensemble put a modern spin on the definition of choir, bringing a new sound to the masses. HALO’s transcendental performances see the city’s favourite voices gather in one space to perform collaboratively and collectively, with the combined energy and talent permeating ever deeper with each ethereal harmony.

This April, HALO Vocal Ensemble will welcome Keanu Finau, Lucinda Franco, Nicolas Duquemin, Tyra Lewis, Emma Volard, Anisha Senaratne, Zoe Koulbanis, Ally Eley, Gideon D. Wilonja, Helena (Lhēon), Tae, Strictly D.T, Liona Tatafu, Harry Tinney and MzRizk for yet another evening of awe-inspiring vocal gymnastics.


HALO Vocal Ensemble are back with the highly anticipated return of their innovative live performances. Taking over the round at beloved Melbourne venue The Night Cat on Saturday 23 April, the collaborative supergroup will bring together some of Melbourne's leading singers, musicians and DJ MzRizk, to perform reimagined arrangements of modern RnB, Soul, Jazz, Gospel and Hip Hop classics.

Having previously sold out their hugely successful shows at Melbourne Music Week x Melbourne Museum Summer Plaza Series in January 2021, Melbourne International Jazz Festival (2021), and MOOMBA (2021, 2022), HALO Vocal Ensemble are thrilled to be returning to the stage for an intimate live performance in the round at Melbourne’s The Night Cat performing reimagined classics from the likes of RnB royalty Kanye West, Chaka Khan, Outkast, Kirk Franklin, Nina Simone and Destiny’s Child.
