Following the recent advice issued by the UK Government and Public Health England in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had little realistic option other than to cancel Eurovox 2020 in Edinburgh. Without knowing how long this crisis will last, it is impossible to remain certain about any dates at the moment. We are ALL very disappointed after years of planning and hard work but the protection and well-being of delegates and presenters is our number one concern. We are immensely proud of the conference we had planned with such an amazing global team behind it, even though we will not see it come to fruition.  All conference fees and tickets will be refunded over the next few weeks.

Welcome to the home of the Eurovox 2020 Conference at Stewart’s Melville College in Edinburgh 24-26 July 2020.

The Association of Teachers of Singing (AOTOS) in the UK is delighted to be hosting this year’s European Voice Teachers Association (EVTA) conference for hundreds of singing teachers from across Europe and wider afield. It promises to be a large and exciting event with masterclasses, workshops, lectures and recitals representing a variety of styles and genres of singing. Many languages will be represented in solo song including Icelandic, German, English, American, Catalan, Spanish, Portuguese and Scottish.

Our main presenters are coming from across Europe and the US, and we welcome new research papers/posters and workshop presenters in addition. There will be a Young Professionals Programme (YPP) for Singers and the conference is preceded by the AOTOS Professional Development Course (PDC) for teachers with 4 years teaching experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh in 2020.


Where is Eurovox Being Held?

Stewart's Melville College

Eurovox 2020 is being held at Stewart's Melville College in Edinburgh. Melville College is an independent school and was founded in 1832 by the Rev. Robert Cunningham with a teaching emphasis on modern subjects, such as science, rather than classical subjects – unusual at that time. Originally named "The Edinburgh Institution for Languages and Mathematics", its name changed to Melville College in 1936.

The school's main Victorian assembly hall was converted to the Tom Fleming Centre for Performing Arts between 2005 and 2007. This £3.5 million project, was paid for in part by donations from the parents of the school's current pupils and former pupils. The Centre has 800 seats that fold back into the wall, providing a variety of possible configurations and was officially opened in 2007.
