QUEENS VOICE LAB

In July 2020 Vital Opera launched the pilot of Queens Voice Lab with a cohort of twelve amazing artists.

Queens Voice Lab is a diverse and inclusive, artist-led community and workspace of professional singer-actors. The project provides a cost-free opportunity for participants to cultivate a safe, supportive community of peers, center their ownership of their creative process, and continue to learn about and explore their craft. Participants engage in regular workshop meetings to share individual and/or group work with the possibility of receiving desired feedback, discuss artistic/career-oriented issues, and initiate other activities or projects of interest that advance the community’s knowledge and skill. On occasion, Queens Voice Lab will engage in public events to share their work and artistry with the Queens community.

Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic makes in-person meetings unsafe for the time being, Queens Voice Lab is conducting its activities online until such a time as in-person meetings pose no risk to participants.

This project is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
