Eurovox, the European congress for voice teachers and voice professionals, is usually organised and hosted every 2-3 years by one of the 23 national member associations of the European Voice Teachers Association (EVTA) in cooperation with its executive committee (EVTA board).
The programme includes lectures, workshops, and paper presentations by renowned voice teachers and other professionals who work with voices.
At the congress all aspects of working with voice, including artistic, pedagogic, medical and social, are investigated and discussed. Working together with others as a singer – singing with other singers in choirs or ensembles, working with conductors, composers, other musicians, pianists, a band, sound engineers, or with a director in musical theatre or opera has been explored.
EVTA also organises a Young Professionals Programme (YPP) which is designed to enable young artists to participate in voice conferences, including Eurovox and ICVT. Around 10 singers usually take part in the program.

We thank all speakers, YPP participants, volunteers, host families and our sponsors for making Eurovox 2018 a successful event. We hope to see everyone again soon!
When and where is the next Eurovox?
A beautifully planned Eurovox 2020 by AOTOS was scheduled to take place in Edinburgh (UK) but sadly had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are currently looking into various options and will gladly accept proposals from our member associations to host the next Eurovox, tentatively in 2024 or 2025.
