Welcome to VoxOp!

We had our inaugural meeting at Northwick Park in January 2011 which was well attended. Since then the awareness and interest in VoxOp has grown rapidly.  It is clear to us that support for singers going through the upsetting experience of a vocal operation is greatly needed.

For those who have already attended a VoxOp meeting, we have created a private members area especially for existing members to log into. This will be regularly updated with details on forthcoming meetings.

Singer Survey

In conjuction with VoxOp Sophie is carrying out a survey into the health and well-being of singers. It is completely anonymous and no personal details are needed. In order to get clear results we need as many singers as possible to fill in the survey.

VoxOp’s first birthday!

Posted by admin2 under General

Since January of 2011 VoxOp has gained significant momentum, far more than we could ever have imagined. The past year has seen an endorsement by The Performing Rights Society and The Musicians Benevolent fund.

We are now getting direct referrals from both surgeons specialising in vocal operations and speech and language therapists. We are also delighted to announce that Claire Martin OBE has agreed to become our first ambassador. Claire is one of the UK’s leading jazz singers.

Sophie was featured in a Channel 4 series called The Food Hospital back in November. This documented Sophie’s struggle with Acid reflux and offered her advice and a diet she followed for 12 weeks to help with the problem. Acid reflux which was the main cause of  Sophie’s vocal problems that led to her own vocal operation.

We at VoxOp are discovering that Acid reflux is a major problem among singers. Here is the link to the Food Hospital website, lick on Episode 2.
