Sharpen Choral Diction - From Mozart to Motown

This course is for choirs or ensembles seeking to achieve "tighter" and more cohesive sounds when it comes to expressing lyrics. Two expert Choir Directors, Brian Wismath and Juliet Russell use their choirs to demonstrate key choices when it comes to diction. Lessons cover: consistent vowel sounds for choir, sibilants, diphthongs, onsets, reducing tongue tension and creating purposeful textual interpretations. You will see both an auditioned classical choir and a non-auditioned contemporary choir at work.
