Choir Man, Jonathon Welch

The moving personal story of the man from the Choir of Hard Knocks

327 Pages

He is the founding Musical Director of the Choir of Hard Knocks, a judge on Battle of the Choirds, and a highly renowned opera singer and conductor who has worked with some of Australia's most talented performers.

But Jonathon Welch's own story is less well knwn, and here he tells it in his own words for the first time.  Hes modest beginnings in suburban Melbourne where he exhibited early 'theatrical' tendencies; his life at the centre of a family falling apart; his coming to terms with his sexuality and the rifts that caused; his stellar career in the heady worlds of opera and theatre; and the crisis that caused him to question his life's direction and to walk away from it all.

In this warm and candid memoir, Jonathon reflects on how music helped him put his own life- and that of many others-back together again.
