Blossoming Expressivity . . .

This workshop opened up the middle voice allowing expressivity to blossom. For the many singers in the group, our detailed explorations led to a confident extroversion of the mid-register, mid-range voice. We released jaw tension and persuaded the tongue to yield up its pseudo-strength so that free breath and and reverberating bone could beautifully and economically serve the needs of the voice for both speaker and singer. Participants came from Poland, Mexico, Germany, Austria, the USA and France and every evening they sang together  -  folk songs and rounds and those glorious Georgian songs where the harmonies jostle and embrace. Judy Shahn (Designated Linklater Teacher) assisted Kristin and ran a workshop for local people on the day off. The glorious weather, the sparkling daffodils and the new-born lambs in the fields reflected the happiness that prevailed in the studio.
