Enhancing Singing And Choral Sound Through Acoustic Principles

Thursday 30th March 2023, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

For some choral conductors, “acoustics” may sound inaccessible or too academic to be useful for their ensemble.

But even a cursory knowledge of vocal and choral acoustics can inform many decisions you make in your classroom and in the performance hall. In this session, we will begin with a primer on vocal acoustics.

Then we will explore a series of practical, science-based techniques you can use immediately to help your choristers sing more efficiently and with improved choral sound.
