    Vocal music in the Baroque era Introduction to the baroque era Taken from the Portuguese word “barroco (oddly shaped pearl)”, the term “Baroque” is associated with Western art music between the periods of 1600 to 1750 (Nicholas Kraemer accessed: 1 September 2016). In congruence to the word it derived from, Baroque music focussed on musical ornamentation, technique and contrast. Additionally, the concept of “melody” and “harmony” began to be articulated and implemented, in contrast to the previously favoured polyphony. The belief in producing music as a potent tool of communication arose during this period when composers were influenced by the Roman and Greek belief that music could communicate and arouse emotions within the listeners. This…

    is self evident that Frank Sinatra has inspired countless artists in todays music world from all diverse genres of music. The two pieces of music I will be comparing are Panic! At the Disco’s “Death of a Bachelor” and Frank Sinatra’s “My Way”. Both, “Death of a Bachelor” and “My Way” are portrayed in different ways, but both songs are in relation to an end of an era. Although the song “Death of a Bachelor” was not inspired by a specific Sinatra song, Panic! was inspired by Sinatra’s compelling…

    folk song known as The Turtle Dove was sung next. In this song I noted on the use of rounds. In my opinion, this technique makes music sound more exciting, and this was definitely an exciting piece to me. The last song Bel Canto sang was Reuben, Reuben. I found this song very humorous when listening to the somewhat offensive lyrics towards men. The girls also used some very sassy hand gestures while singing, making the piece more enjoyable to watch. As the concert drew near to its end, the…

    Keys to being a Vocal Major Having to decide what to major in at college can be a difficult and stressful task, because you are either passionate about many things or not passionate about anything. For me personally, it took me a while to figure it out, but by the time I got to college, I was sure on what I wanted to major in. I realized over the past couple of years how passionate I am about music, but even more specifically, I am passionate about singing. Ever since I was a child I loved…

    that we put in as singers into our work. It 's a long-term process of trying again and again until we get it right and ultimately being satisfied with whatever we end up presented at the end of the night. Music for me is an escape from the hectic and sometimes stressful reality of school and work; being able to come to a class that allows me a safe environment to freely express myself and relax for a couple hours has been one of the most exciting parts of this class and of the concert. Signing…

    In 1912, Arnold Schöenberg used Sprechstimme in Pierrot Lunaire, a set of poems that the vocalist shifts between singing and speaking. Like in speech, the vocal speed fluctuates from rapid to slow and the vocalist’s voice slides between notes. The “human but not quite human” sounds create an eerie mood and show the dark sides of human emotion in an expressionist way. Later on, New Vocalism rose out of works like Luciano Berio’s Circles (1960), in which he manipulated the rhythm of his wife Cathy…

    I always enjoyed singing. I sang along to the songs in Disney movies, to the radio in the car, or just at home in my room. I was in choir all year during seventh grade. We sang many songs that year, even one in an African language, but only one song had any solo tryouts. Mrs. Smith picked “Wide Awake” by Katy Perry for us to sing, so we could have at least one modern song. There were three solos in it, I tried out for the first one. The tryouts weren’t in front of the class, but I still had to…

    learn how to work with others and have a good work ethic and respect everyone. This is how show choir has impacted my life then, and still impacts me. In my 8th grade year I transferred to Sheridan from Gahanna. When I joined the General community, I was a bit shy (like any other new peer joining another school), I was very quiet and I didn’t have much friends. But in English, I met my best friend Emily Welch. We worked on a project together and our friendship increased by the time the project…

    Anatomicals Of Singing

    • 1050 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Singing is anatomical: the brain thinks, and the body responds, any time and any place, that is, if lifestyle behaviors have not deformed the vocal instrument (i.e., excessive spicy foods, alcohol, smoking, screaming, et cetera). Singing begins with an exhalation of human vocal sounds (phonation) (NIDCD, 2015). At the point of phonation, two smooth adjacent muscle tissues in the thorax come into contact and vibrate to create resonating sound waves from the throat, mouth, and nose (NIDCD, 2015).…

    generation was inspired by a battle of two opposing choir groups in early New England. Due to our ever growing competitive spirits, Americans have maintained the tradition of singing contests and expanded its prominence far more than anyone could imagine. On November 7th, 1786, twenty-five men from a small town in Massachusetts united and established the Stoughton Choral Society. Oblivious to the idea, this organization became the first official music society in the United States, a fact that…
