Be part of the sound
Choral hearing and vocal tone formation
This workshop aims at intensifying your choral singing experience.
We will practice differentiated use of our own voices as contribution to the overall choir sound. Examples will be used to increase the sensibility for timbre and tone transport and to appreciate vowel colours. The voice training will enhance our hearing and physical perception of our own voices. We will experience and investigate intonation phenomena in natural pitch.
