A Rich History of Joy and Community

Since its inception in 2005, the Festival of Voices has grown from a small gathering of music enthusiasts into Tasmania’s premier winter festival. What started with a group of friends singing around a fire in the heart of winter has blossomed into a vibrant celebration attracting local, Australian, and international talent. Each year, the festival highlights the joy and well-being benefits of singing, offering a diverse array of events that include choral, cabaret, classical, comedy, and contemporary music.
