World Voice Day: 16th April every year


World Voice Day (branding)

The British Voice Association's contribution to World Voice Day 2023


Preparing for voice surgery (leaflet cover)

World Voice Day is on April 16th and the British Voice Association has added further to its collection of information leaflets in honour of the occasion. The title of the 2023 leaflet is 'Preparing for voice surgery - optimising your recovery'.

This leaflet offers advice on optimising your recovery from voice surgery, specifically surgery on abnormal structural changes described as Benign Vocal Fold Lesions (BVFLs).

This new leaflet will be circulated to our membership and is available for the public to download from our 'Free resources' page.


How BVA members supported World Voice Day 2023

Cerknica, Slovenia

Group of members in Slovenia for World Voice Day 2023

Spent the day with a group of singing teachers, taking them through my Teaching Young Voices course. We had a broad mix of experience and styles, with teachers from all regions of Slovenia. The group were buzzing and fizzing, thoughtful and creative, honest and open.

My new vocal work called 'Tidings' was given its world premiere on 16th April, 2023, beautifully sung by a selection of talented singers from within my practice and narrated by my brother, Neil.

It was warmly received by both performers and singers.
