Do you know singers who are feeling a bit rusty after taking the summer off? Do you know adult singers who wonder about changes in their voices as they age?
The Madison Choral Project would like to invite such singers to attend our Master Class Series:
As we enter the Third Age* of our lives, we experience changes with our voices. As our larynx and lungs experience the same aging issues that our legs and back do, we may notice a breathy timbre, larger vibrato, narrower range, new breaks, less stamina, and less flexibility. Though the fountain of youth remains a mystery, we can offer practical exercises and medical insights to keep you singing into and through the Third Age.
Educate yourself about what you can do to guide your voice into and through the Third Age. Professional singer/educators from the Madison Choral Project will lead three sessions to help you navigate these changes and keep you singing for life. Led by MCP conductor & artistic director, Albert Pinsonneault; MCP singers/church choir directors Kathleen Otterson and Jen Terhune Streit (Madison Christian Community); and speech pathologist/voice specialist Brienne Ruel, M.A., CCC-SLP, our goals are to help people understand the changes in their voices and increase their confidence to keep people singing as long as possible.
Dates: October 14, 21 and 28 from 3:30 – 5:00 pm. Cost: $60
