The Secret Science of Choral Singing
– What is choral blend?
– What makes a good choir?
– Is choral singing good for you?
– What does science have to do with singing?
Place: Old School Hall, York Minster School, York
Hosted by York Centre for Singing Science, this free lecture/ workshop will explore the science behind the principles of ‘good’ choral singing including tuning, blend and articulation. Participants will be encouraged to discover how vowels within a chord, manage the timing of consonants and cope with the pitch-shifting effects of singing in-tune. Images of the sounds will demonstrate the science behind the phenomena that are experienced when listening to or singing in a choir.
