Hit the high notes for World Voice Day

Posted By on Thu, Apr 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM

These days there seems to be an internationally designated day for pretty much everything. If there's a day for pancakes, there might as well be a day for voices - hence today's World Voice Day.


The Carolina Voices' Festival Singers have partnered with The Voice and Swallowing Center (that sounds so wrong) to celebrate this special day at Myers Park Baptist Church. Special sessions include Voice 101, Laryngitis 101, and other topics geared towards actors and singers. As weird as the event may sound, aspiring singers and actors shouldn't scoff at it. Taking care of your voice is paramount to having a long-lasting performing career and apparently there's a lot more to preserving your vocal chords than refraining from smoking, avoiding dairy products, and wearing scarves around your neck. Free food and beverages as well as a concert by Carolina Voices' Festival Singers is also in the mix.

Free. April 19, 5:45 p.m.-9 p.m. Myers Park Baptist Church, 1900 Queens Road. For reservations, call 704-374-1564. - Tricia Bangit
