All Together Now with Sydney Eisteddfod Alumni & Adjudicators


Seven Network's newest singing competition, All Together Now, features Australia's largest judging panel and includes some of Sydney Eisteddfod's high flying alumni and adjudicators: mezzo soprano Jacqueline Dark (Moran); tenor John Longmuir; soprano Clarissa Spata; contemporary singer Shauna Jensen; and well-known entertainer Rhonda Burchmore.

Presented by Julia Zemiro and Ronan Keating, 'The 100' are a panel of judges, who are as versatile in their skill set as their opinions for a show that embraces all manner of songs, styles and eras - as long as it's entertaining!

Award-winning classical singer and performer Jacqueline Dark was a finalist in Sydney Eisteddfod's Operatic Aria event in 1999 and 2000 and has cultivated a diverse set of skills from opera and musical theatre through to cabaret.

Principal performer with Opera Australia and another award winning operatic name, John Longmuir's connection with Sydney Eisteddfod dates back to 2009 when John competed as a finalist in the Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship.

Shauna Jensen has appeared in numerous stage productions, on live TV and has been the voice behind hundreds of TV, radio and movie commercials, and has been adjudicating with Sydney Eisteddfod.

Also known as Australia's leading theatre and cabaret artist, Rhonda Burchmore is trained in singing, dancing and acting and is particularly noted as a popular corporate entertainer. Between 1966 and 1971, Rhonda performed in numerous tap dancing and singing events.

And finally Clarissa Spata, whose singing repertoire ranges from jazz and musical theatre to opera, won the Vocal Duet event in 2007 with Natalie Aroyan and competed as a semi-finalist in the Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship in 2009. 

Congratulations to all these industry professionals, who have the opportunity to influence the next generation of performers and be part of this entertaining show.
