About

The Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice is a yearly event that brings world-class vocal performances to the Catskill Mountains every summer.

This year’s festival takes place on Aug. 2-4 at various venues in the quaint hamlet of Phoenicia, NY. The 2019 season celebrates our 10 year anniversary with a program honoring African-American culture and talent featuring the opera Elixir of Love reimagined in an African village and a very special cast.

Our festival has grown to be one of the region’s cultural jewels. The Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice, a program of the Phoenicia Festival of the Voice Foundation, utilizes the power of the human voice to inspire, empower and heal. Through captivating, internationally  acclaimed performances, the Festival of the Voice Foundation seeks to expose and popularize the vocal arts, making them approachable and novel, discovering and developing new talents--locally, nationally and internationally--and lastly, acts as an economic engine to increase the value and popularity of the area.
