A VOICE FOR LIFE - Sing Your Best at Any Age - with clinician DR. VICTORIA MEREDITH

A lifetime of active choral participation is highly valuable to people who enjoy singing. In this interactive session, singers of all ages will gain knowledge and techniques that will help them to continue to sing as well as possible for as long as possible. Dr. Victoria Meredith will also address relationships between choral singing and various aspects of physical, psychological and social wellbeing.

She has directed choirs of all ages, including the 2010 National Youth Choir of Canada and honour choirs in nearly every province and the United States. Ensembles under her direction have earned over twenty national awards. A frequent juror for arts organizations such as the Canada Council and music festivals across the country, Dr. Meredith maintains an active career as a guest conductor, workshop clinician, adjudicator and author.
