The Festival of Voices has become known internationally as a special meeting place for singers to come and sing, share and hang out with each other.
The program includes workshops, major choral events and performances by cabaret artists, actors, jazz and contemporary singers from around Australia and overseas.
The festival hub – Voicebox – is a pop-up cabaret style venue within Hobart’s City Hall with other spaces around Hobart activated during the festival.
Keep your eyes peeled as you might be surprised by one of the dozens of pop-up choir performances in and around the streets and public spaces of Hobart and surrounds. Many of these are performed by visiting choirs who come to the festival just so they can sing.
The festival is kicking off this weekend with a special program of concerts produced by Ange Boxall called FoV Coastal.
The Big Sing Bonfire event in Salamanca is also a highlight of the program as thousands of locals and visitors join for a group sing a long in front of a giant bonfire in the middle of the city.
