Tasmanian Choirs – 2022 Package

1 - 10 July 2022  |  Choirs & Choir Leaders  |  Adult  |  $25 pp*

Providing local Tasmanian choir singers with a very special Festival Package

 

Choirs and individuals from around Tasmania are especially welcome to join in a range of singing experiences during the festival.  Designed for community choir members who want to develop their interest in singing and explore new arrangements and repertoire, this package is open to individuals and groups upon registration. 

The festival provides opportunities to perform in a range of indoor and outdoor venues, from museums to markets and libraries to leading hotels. The Tasmanian Choir – 2022 Package is designed for community choir members to enjoy a range of experiences that remain at the heart of the festival.  We also offer you access to special events and popular attractions (more on that soon!)  

 

Package Perks  

 

Choirs in the Community Pop-Up Program   

Surprise and delight audiences around Hobart streets and in unique locations across the city. Choirs are invited to perform to guests and passers-by in a creatively curated program.  

 

The Festival Singers’ Lounge – free audience entry on Tuesday 5 / Wednesday 6 July  

Often described as the heart and soul of Festival of Voices, we think it’s our best kept secret!  Friends – old and new – revel in the glory of scheduled and impromptu performances (sometimes until the wee hours). Audiences are treated to spontaneous song by some of our big-name performers who in turn have been known to encourage anxious altos and timid tenors overcome any performing fears to bask in the safe and welcoming arms of our audience. It’s always bustling and really is the ultimate Singers Love-In!  Entry is subject to availability and current capacity limitations. 

 

Choir leaders – please check information below, as Choirs in the Community and Singers Lounge perks requires extra registration* 

 

Special Event Workshop - Sing with Jacqueline Larsen. Exclusive to Tasmanian Choirs! 

 

Sing with Jacqueline Larsen is back by popular demand. A big screen afternoon singalong in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Grand Chancellor on Friday 8 July. No preparation required, just turn up and sing!
