Description: The consequence of constructing one’s choral tone from the collective blend of individual timbres with emphasis on the development of the singer, is a critical need for voicing each section of the choir so as to position every singer for maximum contribution and effective blend. The term “voicing,” when applied to choral singers, refers to the placement of each singer in the best possible acoustical environment in relationship to other singers. The session will serve as a lab, using various workshop participants in the voicing process.
