"The earth has music for those who listen" - William Shakespeare
Launched in 2014, Celebrate Voice brings together leading international singers and the local community with a diverse 10-day programme of inspiring celebrity performances, and uplifting singing events throughout October half term. Celebrate Voice was named 'The Pride of Wiltshire' in the Wiltshire Life Magazine awards, for its services to quality and community music making in the County.
Our international performers have sung at the world's leading venues: Royal Opera House, BBC Proms, Sydney Opera House, Metropolitan Opera, London's West End, BBC Folk Awards, London Palladium, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and Glastonbury Festival, to name a few.
Celebrate Voice brings these leading lights to Salisbury, Wiltshire. And not only do we present world class singers and celebrate many different genres of song, we truly celebrate the community in which these performances happen. We take our inspiring singers to perform for local groups who might ordinarily not have access to first-rate performances, we enable children to be part of our international opera casts, we provide sing-along events in the city centre, and we will deliver a daytime programme for families. Plus our weekend workshops are led by inspirational UK musicians, enabling people of all ages and abilities to take part and to share, connect, laugh and sing!
Celebrate Voice was founded by singer, producer and vocal animateur Lynsey Docherty, to showcase the best voices in the industry and enable the Salisbury community to be part of an uplifting celebration.
Please take a moment to watch a video made in 2014 which demonstrates our joyful and humble beginnings:
