Local singers and professional vocalists from around the country will come together over nine days in a celebration of all things vocal for the Festival of the Voice, to be held in Brunswick May 24 till June 2.

Held in conjunction with the Bruns Picture House and and Song Dynasty Music Events, the nine day event will be spread across three venues.

The program ranges from Shout Pray Sing to two hugely acclaimed shows by Michaela Burger to an extensive series of workshops.

Singer, songwriter and choirmaker Janet Swain says, ‘Collaborating with Brunswick Picture House – the natural home for Song Dynasty Music Events – after two years of combined ad hoc choir work and performances, means that the festival has its own unique voice – a voice that combines pizzazz and showmanship with heart and community.’
