Festival Of Voices

From the 5th of July through to the 14th of July, Tasmania will come alive with the sound of music in a celebration of song and voice.

The Festival of Voices will bring acclaimed performers from around the world to Tasmania to work with local artists and entertain the general public.

The event will be launched in Salamanca with a spectacular performance staring Christine Anu and a 300 children choir singing My Island Home. The festival continues for a further ten days with non-stop entertainment featuring big Australian names such as Paul McDermott and Kate Ceberano and International act, US based vocal group, Take 6.

Ceberano will bring her amazing singer/songwriting skills to Hobart for a one night performance at the Federation Concert Hall on Friday the 12th of July where the audience is set to be wooed by her soulful, sultry sounds. McDermott is also set to perform at the Federation Concert Hall, in a show which will chronicle his time with the Doug Anthony Allstars, The Slideshow and Good News Week through songs and stories in a humorous and surprising performance on Saturday the 6th of July.

Take 6 will arrive from the U.S. fresh to entertain as the cappella group celebrate their 25th anniversary together. This group has received praise from music greats such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston and will bring their harmonies, rhythms and arrangements to Tasmania on Thursday the 11th of July.

These big name performances will occur alongside talented interstate acts, including People’s Choice in The Voice 2012, Darren Percival, who will be at City Hall. Christine Anu will take the stage again on Saturday the 6th of the July and compulsive noise maker and beat boxer, Tom Thum, will be making sound waves at City Hall on the 6th and 7th of July.

The list of performers, events, and workshops go on and on, but needless to say there is something for everyone of every age in this year’s event.
