In The News!  "The Art & Science of the Performing Voice" conference, April 2017

The Northwest Voice Conference

Conference Committee

Who Are We? 

The Northwest Voice Conference is a cooperative effort of the University of Washington's Voice Department in the School of Music, the Division of Laryngology within the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, and the Voice Section of the Speech & Hearing Sciences Department.

The Northwest Voice Conference focuses on the intersection and integration of the art and the science of the performing voice, and vocal production in general. Our mission is to provide the latest research and information from the areas of medicine, voice science, vocal pedagogy and performance, and the assessment and treatment of voice disorders, to professionals and students in medicine, speech pathology, theater, and vocal pedagogy and performance.


The first Northwest Voice Conference in April 2016, "The Art & Science of the Performing Voice," was made possible by a generous grant from the University of Washington Bergstrom Award for Art & Science. Because of this initial support we were able to establish The Northwest Voice Conference as an ongoing event.
