Shared by |tags, , , ,

Tasmania's Festival of Voices edges ever closer to the capital city, with the island's largest winter cultural event to dazzle the city from 5 – 14 July 2013.

The Festival of Voices is Australia's "premier celebration of the human voice" with this year's event featuring exclusive international and national guests including iconic Indigenous singer Christine Anu, The Voice's Darren Percival and contemporary a cappella artist from the USA Deke Sharon.

More exceptional talent joins this lineup including the most awarded vocal group in history, Christian vocal jazz ensemble Take 6, musical director Charlie Beale, Brisbane-based composer Harley Mead and Australian artist Kate Ceberano.

A number of workshops will also take place during the festival, such as The Power of Voices, with teachers meeting vocalists and choristers to perform in "uniquely Hobartian" venues.

Take 6 will also lead a four-day Gospel workshop, in an Australian first, allowing you to work up close and personal with the best in the business.

Conductors across the country also have the opportunity to take part in a workshop catering to conductors of semi-professional and school choirs, community and church choirs as well as interested choristers.

The intensive sessions will cover topics such as vocal techniques and sound building for singers of all ages and experience, developing your conducting skills, and break out sessions specifically for A Capella, adult community and youth choirs.

The Festival of Hours will be set across a number of fantastic venues in Hobart including the C3 Conference Centre, Castray Esplanade in Salamanca, Conservatorium of Music Recital Hall, Federation Concert Hall, MONA and Hobart Town Hall.

You can purchase your tickets online from Eventbrite now! Stay tuned to the Festival of Voices Facebook page for the latest updates.
