Story

We can't sing together this year, so the 13th annual  Young Men's Choral Festival will be moving online. If you're a high school or middle school tenor or bass who loves to sing, join us on Saturday, January 30 for a series of three fun, fast-paced workshops:

12:30-1:30pm:  Vocal Workshop with Paulo Faustini

1:30-2:30pm:  Sight-singing and ear training with John Black

3:00-4:00pm:  Choral Session with Dr. Anthony Trecek-King

VOCAL AWARENESS WORKSHOP

Led by voice coach Paulo Faustini, you will spend an hour doing vocal awareness exercises to:

  • discover the good physical sensations for optimal vocal production for the singing musician
  • become aware of the breath and use it as a sound generator
  • connect the body and learn to properly physicalize our experience as choral singers
  • demystify often used vocal terminology such as “chest voice”, “head voice”, “falsetto”, etc.
  • learn to access both the upper and lower registers of our range, while maintaining good balance in the middle
  • get in touch with the “articulators” of singing and use them to free the sound
  • answer any questions pertaining to vocal technique


SIGHT-SINGING AND EAR TRAINING

John Black will introduce you to Solfège syllables and the Curwen hand signs, starting with basics and building to include a variety of strategies for effective sight-singing. Beginning ear training exercises will be interspersed with a  fun, interactive games and activities to help you build comfort and familiarity with aural skills and connect these to overall musicianship.
