Coming up next on Voicebox: Holy Melisma!: A composer’s guide to the development and practice of ornamentation in singing
Saturday, July 23, 2011
Ornamentation has been a staple of vocal music for hundreds if not thousands of years. Join composer and writer Brian Rosen, soprano Julia Hathaway, and VoiceBox host Chloe Veltman for a discussion about the ways in which singers (and composers) adorn melodies – and the factors that separate memorable from forgettable embellishments.
Read Brian's companion blogpost on the theme of 'melismatic singing' here.
