Beyond the Fear of Singing UK Premiere


In a society where people are measured according to the prowess of their performance, early childhood criticism of the sound of our voice or comparing our expression to others may contribute to hiding our singing voice and creativity.

Fear of singing has become a kind of silent, global epidemic.

Beyond the Fear of Singing explores the existential gap between ‘performers’ and ‘non-performers’, the healing journey of acceptance and emergence from hiding our voices, and a global grassroots return, both individually and collectively, to appreciation for our natural voice and unique song.

Inspiring and educational for anyone ever ‘asked to leave the choir’, as well as those who never stopped singing, the film also serves those dedicated to the performing and musical therapeutic arts as a resource for reinforcing a message of welcome and reconnection with our natural impulse to express through our voice.
