Frost School of Music performers teamed up with otolaryngologists from the University of Miami's medical school for on-campus concerts on World Voice Day, April 16.

The day-long event was planned by UM's otolaryngology department to highlight the importance of vocal health. After the concerts, UM held classes for vocalists incorporating yoga techniques.

 

Forty-nine countries celebrated Voice Day worldwide. A few cities host Voice Day flash mobs, fundraisers and, of course, radio programs.
