Coming up next on VoiceBox -- Innate Chemistry: How singers communicate with their bands
Friday, December 28, 2012
When you’re the one standing in front of the mike, it’s easy to feel like you’re the center of the universe. But communicating properly with your band members is absolutely key to giving a successful performance. Jazz vocalist Ellen Robinson and saxophonist Kristen Strom join VoiceBox host Chloe Veltman for a discussion about the subtle yet powerful art of communication that takes place between great singers and the great instrumentalists and backing singers that surround them.

Question of the Week:Isn't it kind of disappointing to learn that singers don't communicate with their bands (at rehearsals, for example) by singing at them, at the top of their lungs?
