Launched in 2013, Celebrate Voice brings together leading international singers and the Salisbury 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 significant contribution 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, Broadway, BBC Folk Awards, London Palladium, Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and Glastonbury Festival, to name a few.
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 create daytime performances for vulnerable, older people who might ordinarily not have access to first-rate performances, we enable young adults with SEND to sing with our international opera casts, we provide interactive workshops for little ones and adults alike and we deliver a daytime programme for all ages.
Celebrate Voice was founded by singer, producer and vocal director Lynsey Docherty, to showcase the best voices in the industry and enable the Salisbury community to be part of an joyful celebration of the human voice.
