Performing Choir Package
Welcoming all ensembles including community and non-auditioned choirs to join in our non-competitive concert series for five days of singing and fun in grand Festival of Voices tradition.
Included in this package are performance and audience opportunities for all choir and choir members to sing and listen at the venues listed below.
The Singers’ Lounge is our version of a Festival Club, where choirs gather to sing in a far more informal setting. Commencing at 7.30 pm until late on selected days, this year coordinated and hosted by Paul Jarman. A fixed program of entertainment is followed by a “blackboard” open style sessions. The Singers’ Lounge will operate for 6 nights in the Long Gallery at 77 Salamanca Place. However, on Saturday 15 July the venue will be moved to the City Hall for the first ever “After Party”.
Stage, microphones, keyboard, music stand, audio backing tracks and a professional sound operator will be in attendance.
Choirs interested in performing in the Singers’ Lounge program should complete the relevant form.
There will be Pop-up performance opportunities both indoor and outdoor. Indoor performances include many leading hotels such as The Grand Chancellor Hotel, Hadley’s Orient Hotel and the Henry Jones Art Hotel. Other indoor spaces may include MONA , Hobart International Airport, the Tasmania Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), shopping centres and many others.
Outdoor performances include Salamanca Market (Saturdays only), Salamanca Square, Elizabeth Street Mall, Farm Gate Market (Sundays only), Red Decker Bus and many more venues including parks and gardens.
Our preference is for most performances be a cappella, particularly those scheduled for outdoors. There is limited availability of audio equipment for indoor Pop-ups and some venues have a piano. A conductor’s music stand is available on request. Any equipment requirements should be requested on the relevant form.
