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

Northwest Voice 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 "The Art & Science of the Performing Voice" conference put on by Northwest Voice in April 2016, was made possible by a generous grant from the University of Washington Bergstrom Award for Art & Science. Because of this support we were able to establish an annual conference.
