Have you ever listened to an accomplished singer and wondered, "How does that person produce that incredible sound?" At Oberlin Conservatory, professors of singing have pioneered the use of visual and auditory technology as a feedback tool, revealing through science what has long remained mysterious about the singing voice. In a live demonstration, conservatory singers' voices will be shown with an acoustic display to delve into some of these questions: What makes a good operatic voice? What are the commonalities and differences? How are opera singers heard over an orchestra without use of a microphone? The program will also include a sampling of different singing styles and a "look" at some of the premiere vocalists of our time. Featuring Lorraine Manz, associate professor of singing and director of the Otto B. Schoepfle Vocal Arts Center at the Oberlin Conservatory.
