On April 16, The Center for the Performing Arts will be participating in World Voice Day. Anyone interested can come and sing karaoke on the Palladium stage with a live pianist. There will be solo and group opportunities for all.
The Voice Clinic of Indiana in Carmel will be sponsoring the event. Because of their sponsor, World Voice Day is free to the public. The Voice Clinic is the only center in the state to care for the voice, and everything related to voice health including swallowing, breathing, cancer, and more.
“World Voice Day is an international celebration of the voice,” Emily Lovison, Director of Development at the Center for the Performing Arts, said. “It is an artistic vehicle of expression and we also focus on the mechanics of the voice.”
SEP Science of Sound was the official event that brought incorporating the performing arts with science, and in turn, brought World Voice Day to Carmel. Science of Sound is a program where third graders in Carmel schools learn about sound.
The Center has a wide variety of engagement activities involving the performing arts and the public, such as a book club, country line dancing lessons, and more.
“One of the strengths in our organization is the strength in our diversity,” Lovison said. “For example we have a book club that reads books about the performing arts. We have lots of different ways to use the performing arts to engage people and welcome them, no matter what their interests are.”
The Center hopes that World Voice Day is a good time for the public, as well as brings light on some of the other engagement activities they offer. World Voice Day takes place during 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., and participants can feel free to show up whenever during that time period.
