The Phenomenon of Singing

The Phenomenon of Singing is an International Symposium and an integral academic component of Festival 500, Newfoundland's celebrated international choral festival. The Symposium attracts international scholars, pedagogues and artists who come to engage with others in interdisciplinary discourse through the presentations of research, lecture-recitals, panels, poster sessions and roundtable dialogues. Presentations address a variety of aspects of singing and the voice including artistic, physiological, cultural, sociological, historical, pedagogical, psychological, creative/compositional... and more. The Symposium aims to gather international expertise, provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion, performance and the dissemination of research, and generate further knowledge relating to the phenomenon of singing.
