It’s the fifteenth year of The Festival of Voices in Southern Tasmania. A two week celebration of choirs, solos, a cappella, duets, various music styles, many free events, some ticketed concerts, workshops.

The highlight is the free open air “Big Sing Bonfire” held in Salamanca Place. Last night was a perfect still, mild evening, attracting a large crowd covering all generations.

The crowd was in good voice, joining a band and performers on stage, singing along to Queen, Abba, Carole King, Aretha Franklin and others. The finale was “Love is in the Air” by John Paul Young which everyone sung in three part harmony. Such a joyful evening.


Before the bonfires and once they were alight.
