According to a 2019 Chorus America study, 54 million Americans sing in choirs. The UK adds another 2 million in choirs, according to a 2017 Voices Now census. That number doesn’t even include all of the solo singers and karaoke singers in those two countries. If we consider that at least 1/2 of those singers are women, we can see that the vocal changes in menopause and beyond impact at least 27 million singers just in those two countries.
People connect with voice. We can see the power of voice in spoken word through the popularity of things like the Clubhouse app and podcasts, and in singing at the Grammys, the presidential inauguration, and sporting events.
How is it ok then, that we let women’s voices fade into near silence as they age? It isn’t! The female elders of society deserve to be heard. And Celebrate Singing is doing that.
Celebrate Singing is empowering women who sing, as well as empowering their voice teachers and choral directors, to let their voices ring. To share their stories, emotions, and musical connections in ways they have never been encouraged to do until now.
Powerful speakers, almost all of whom are women themselves, will share with the world for the first time in any event, the medical, psychological, and musical paths that women can take to continue raising their voices in song. To be heard. To change the world.
Nancy Bos, CEO of StudioBos Media, has curated an amazing global consort of fun, powerful, creative, talented and influential speakers on the topic of singing through menopause and beyond. “These speakers are a brilliant array of people, bringing their passion to help women celebrate singing in any stage of life,” states Nancy Bos. The three day virtual conference, Celebrate Singing for Women in Midlife and Beyond, begins April 16, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
This is the first summit of its kind. Presenters will address topics on ‘Voice of an Artist - Mindset of an Athlete’, ‘The Narratives of Transformation and Liberation as a Conscious Choice’, ‘Voice and the Menopausal Transition’, ‘What Voice Type Am I Now?’, ‘Choosing Joy’, ‘Yoga for Singers’, and more. Comedy entertainer and renowned Australian vocalist Queenie van de Zandt in her alter-ego role as Jan van de Stool, will perform at the midpoint of the conference. “I’m so excited to be a part of an international event like this,” says van de Zandt.
Whether currently looking for guidance, or wanting to increase the global impact for singing women, everyone can register now to attend Celebrate Singing For Women in Midlife And Beyond.

Celebrate Singing for Women is a first-of-its-kind international media and event brand encouraging the deep human calling to sing for hope and community.
SEATTLE, WA, US, June 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- People connect through voices. Realizing that nearly 46 million people regularly sing in choirs around the globe, Nancy Bos, CEO of StudioBos Media is launching a new division of her company, called Celebrate Singing, for women in midlife and beyond. This is fast on the heels of a highly successful three-day conference built around the co-authored book, "Singing Through Change – Women’s Voices in Midlife, Menopause and Beyond".
Celebrate Singing offers events that connect people through voice. Celebrate Singing’s mission is to nourish and empower people to express themselves in song for health, well-being and social connection.
Nancy Bos, a globally recognized voice expert, says, “Women's voices change through midlife, and Celebrate Singing is here to make sure those voices get stronger rather than fade. The female voices of society deserve to be heard, in both speech and song.” While it is true that humans express thoughts and feelings through voice, often there is a failure to recognize the voice is a mechanical, physical, and athletic tool requiring support. This is particularly true for women. Beginning as early as age 40, hormonal changes can start altering the female voice.
Bos is building on her professional connections in the United States, the UK, Europe, and Australia, in the areas of vocal pedagogy, laryngology, speech language pathology, vocal research, psychology, somatic education, yoga, naturopathic medicine, and performance. She has assembled academicians, researchers, and professionals to present workshops and events through this new company division, Celebrate Singing. The division will strive to inform all women ages 40 – 60 of these valuable new research results-
How to counter the physical and neurological changes that can cause speech and singing, to noticeably slow down.
How food choices affect women and their voices.
Why many doctors ignore the most noticeable symptom of menopause, a hoarse voice.
Why aging and menopause affect the voice differently and what it means for women.
The mind-body connection methods to keep the voice strong.
While the threat of COVID-19 had forced choral groups to stop gathering and professional singers to stop live performances, it allowed access to new virtual connections across the globe. The international reach of the Celebrate Singing brand is one woman's work to bring hope, community and strength to women in ways never before seen; to keep their voices strong.

Voice teachers, choral directors, choir members, amateur singers and professionals are tuning into the new research at the core of Celebrate Singing in the flagship book 'Singing Through Change'. Some of the participants include voice teachers from Poland to Australia, and from Europe and the US, Choral Directors from the UK, and singers from everywhere, including soloists in all genres and choral singers from professional, amateur, and barbershop choirs.
Celebrate Singing will be donating a percentage of profits to Musicians On Call, a n organization seeking to change the cold, sterile environment in hospital rooms. Musicians On Call believes that all patients, families and caregivers should have access to and benefit from the healing power of live music.
We have also partnered with World Voice Day to increase public understanding of the voice disciplines and as an accessible topic for education in physics, mathematics and biology, as well as cultural and personal development.
