To celebrate 75 extraordinary years the Wellcome Trust is hosting a series of innovative events linking science and the arts. The Wellcome Trust is today the UK’s largest global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving groundbreaking improvements in human and animal health.


The Science of Singing supported by Dame Gwyneth Jones

As part of the Wellcome Trust’s 75th Anniversary celebrations, soprano Dame Gwyneth Jones will take to the stage to present The Science of Singing in an innovative event to mark the anniversary. Inspired by achievements made by the Trust in vocal health, the science behind singing and music will be explored at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.


On Saturday 18th June, Dame Gwyneth Jones will host an advanced vocal masterclass, building on the importance of vocal health and the benefits that singing can bring. Tom Harris, a leading vocal consultant and founding chairman of the Voice Research Society, will explain the science behind singing and the benefits it can bring to a individual’s health.


To complement this event, a Wellcome Trust exhibit installed at St David’s Hall,Cardiff, during the week of BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, 13th-18th June, will explore the science of singing and music. Interactive activities for visitors will include the chance to auto-tune their voice, test their musical perception and try vocal remedies of myth and science at The Remedy Bar. The bar will serve a small selection of cures and aids that have been used by celebrities and professionals alike over the past 75 years, examining the science behind each one.
