What Makes A Great Voice? - Find Out By Tuning Into VoiceBox #4
Sunday, June 14, 2009
VoiceBox is NPR affiliate station KALW 91.7 FM's eclectic new radio show dedicated to the art of singing and the best of the vocal music scene.
Please join host Chloe Veltman this coming Friday from 10 - 11 pm PST for the next broadcast in this exciting five-part pilot series.
VoiceBox turns philosophical on June 19 as Deke Sharon, a San Francisco-based vocal music expert and lead arranger / performer with the a cappella rock band The House Jacks joins host Chloe Veltman in the studio for a discussion about what makes a great singing voice.
Using performances by the latest British singing sensation Susan Boyle as a jumping off point for a wide-ranging discussion about the aesthetics of vocal music, Deke and Chloe explore whether there are intrinsic qualities to every great singing voice, or, if beauty, as far as vocal performance goes, exists firmly within in the ear of the beholder.
VoiceBox celebrates the art of song through highlighting the work of singers, composers, conductors and other amazing vocal music aficionados past and present. Whether you’re interested in Fado, Folk, Opera, Oratorio, Plainchant or Post-Punk, join host Chloe Veltman every Friday night for five weeks from 10-11pm PST starting on May 29 for an eclectic exploration of the best of the vocal music scene from the Bay Area and beyond.
VoiceBox airs on Friday evenings on NPR affiliate KALW 91.7 FM San Francisco. You can also hear the show via live webstream at http://www.kalw.org.
