I AM MY VOICE: The Art and Science of Vocal Identity

Sunday 4th September 2022: 11:00 - 16:00 BST

Our first 'in person' event for over two years!

This is the BVA's AGM/Study Day. The Annual General Meeting (starting at 10:00am) is for BVA members only followed by the Study Day (at 11:00am) which is open to everyone.

Goodenough College
Mecklenburgh Square

Your voice is entirely unique. Your acoustic profile identifies, even verifies you. Intriguingly, your voice reveals: who you are, how you feel, where you've been, and who and what you've been listening to. Those who work professionally with voices, scientist or artist, know that a voice is more than distinctive acoustic or physiology. A voice is personal: formed by mind, language and culture, and central to a concept of self.

This BVA Study Day, our first live event in three years, is for anyone working with voice: speech therapists, singing teachers, vocal coaches, physical therapists, doctors and performers.

The programme schedule and details of the speakers and topics are here.
