Contribute to Europe-wide survey of vocal health

VOICE - Vision On Innovation for Choral music in Europe

VOICE is a European project for the sustainable development and innovation of choral singing, a first-time major cooperation between choral operators, music educators and researchers. It is a joint effort of 15 co-organisers, spread over 11 countries. The UK (York University) component of this is a project investigating the vocal health of choral singers. Choral singing is such an important part of the British culture, and yet there have been no studies to date looking into the vocal health of these singers. The project leaders are Professor David Howard and Dr Christian Herbst, and the remainder of the team comprises Dr Jenevora Williams, Dr Helena Daffern, and Dr Gillyanne Kayes.

As part of the project they are running a Europe-wide survey of choral singers, which is available online. The survey information will provide them with important baseline information about the current culture of choral singing in Europe.

The survey is anonymous and takes about 90 seconds to complete:

VOICE will invest in research on the voice in partnership with universities and collect data on choral life in Europe. The 15 partners will spread the results to develop a new vision on choral singing in Europe.
