Plans for the ADN World Voice Day Campaign are well and truly underway.
In 2017, the whole month of April will be an opportunity for us to make some noise about the magic of voice, while highlighting that some of us do not share the joy of easy communication.
This year sees our concert series, in partnership with the Australian Voice Association, expand to 4 major events. We also have some ‘friends of dysphonia’ working to host fund raising events which will contribute to raising awareness, and money to assist our research and support efforts.
Once again we are thrilled to announce the support of Actor Paula Duncan as our Media Ambassador. A household name in television, Paula has a personal appreciation of the importance of voice, this coupled with her passion for work in disabilities makes her our perfect spokesperson.
The 2017 ADN World Voice Day Concert series schedule includes:
Harmonies in the Hills – Friday 7th April 7.30pm @ Castle Hill RSL a smorgasbord of vocal talents – featuring Australia’s 6 time Golden Guitar winner Melinda Schneider
