World Voice Day (WVD) is a worldwide annual event that takes place on April 16 devoted to the celebration of the phenomenon of voice. Currently more than 50 countries are participating in the celebration of WVD.

Brooklyn Theatre’s celebration of World Voice Day in 2019 marked the beginning of something new and exciting to be enjoyed annually by all voice enthusiasts.

In 2019 a series of lectures were given, while an All-Vocal-Concert has been scheduled for the 2020 World Voice Day.

The AHMS Junior choir, comprising 90 girls will be strutting their stuff in collaboration with two SA opera singers - Magdalene Minnaar (soprano) & Christopher Vale (baritone) with a programme of solos and duets. It so happens that Christopher is an expert on voice production and will be chatting about various aspects thereof throughout the concert.

The concert programme is a most accessible and enjoyable compilation of arias, songs from musicals, duets and choral music for old and young.

Voice is a critical aspect of effective and healthy communication in the daily lives of all people. WVD establishes an awareness among the public about the enormous importance of the voice. It brings awareness to the need for preventing voice problems, rehabilitating the deviant of sick voice, training the artistic voice, and researching the functional application of voice. By celebrating WVD we encourage all those who use their voice for business or pleasure to learn to take care of their voice, and know how to seek help and training, and to support research on the voice. - (Wikipedia)
