The International Congress of Voice Teachers (ICVT) is now accepting proposals for inclusion in its ICVT2017 conference, which will be held August 2-7, 2017, in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Congress, hosted by the Voice Teachers of Sweden (VoTS) will primarily take place at two venues in Stockholm: The Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre as well as the Royal College of Music.

Although the Congress program is still a work in progress at this time, the event’s website lists the following:

  • August 3: Waterfront Congress Centre: Opening ceremony and lectures followed by a concert at the Hall of State in the Stockholm Royal Palace;
  • August 4: Royal College of Music: Lectures, seminars, workshops. In the evening (supplementary charge) there will be an excursion by boat to Drottningholm Theatre with a guided tour and concert;
  • August 5: Royal College of Music: Lectures, seminars, workshops followed by a boat trip to the Stockholm archipelago and Artipelag with dinner and entertainment;
  • August 6: Royal College of Music: Lectures, seminars, workshops and closing ceremony.

In 1994, NATS and dozens of other voice teacher associations entered into a Joint Venture Agreement to facilitate (by providing marketing services and managing funds) a worldwide gathering of voice teachers for master classes and sessions, very similar to the NATS national conferences, but international in scope. Every four years, ICVT is held in one of the member countries. ICVT 2013 was held in Brisbane, Australia.
