Tasmania is known as the Island of Inspiration, and if inspiration is what you seek, then look no further than the upcoming Festival of Voices, kicking off in Hobart in July.
Now in its eighth year, the festival is looking to go bigger then ever, extending to an unprecedented ten days of singing performance and workshops. Scheduled performers include contemporary folk singer Moira Smiley, gospel singer Eric Dozier and celebrated Canadian conductor Lydia Adams.
There will also be a range of choir groups performing, all in various beautiful venues nestled amongst the unique scenery of Tasmania.
If you want to get involved, there will be plenty to interest non-professional musicians as well, with workshops running throughout the event for singers of all ages.
Whether you're looking for a master-class experience, or just the opportunity to meet other talented performers, this festival has a program for you.
The Festival of Voices is the only annual choir festival in Australia, and last year attracted over 10,000 people, so start planning your Tasmanian getaway today to avoid disappointment.
The event runs for ten days from July 6th to the 15th. For more info and ticket sales, visit www.festivalofvoices.com
