Tasmania’s Festival of Voices announces 2016 program

Tasmania’s Festival of Voices is returning for 2016, and will be bringing with it a huge program of singers and choirs. Taking place from July 30 – June 17, cities around Tasmania will be taken over by song, engaging visitors and locals to engage in thematic and performances that will be presented.

The festival has been annually running for twelve years, bringing communities together through music and song. This year, the event is stepping it up a notch, and debuting the Winterlight event in Launceston, which will see the streets blocked off for a singing procession that will end in Inveresk with a free musical showcase.

The 2016 line-up will see acts like Meow Meow, Abbe May, Ngairee, Lady Sings it Better, Tripod, The Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir, Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum and many more. The event will also feature song writing workshops, a feature of the history of women in song, a workshop in conducting, along with over 100 more events.
