Expressive ensemble performance network organises World Voice Day
The WRoCAH funded PhD network 'Expressive nonverbal communication in ensemble performance' is organising the upcoming World Voice Day, on the theme ‘Mastering Ensemble Singing: The Science and the Art'. Turning it into a student-led event, the three PhD students Sara d'Amario (University of York), Ryan Kirkbride (University of Leeds), and Nicola Pennill (University of Sheffield) have assured funding to invite two leading vocal maestros to give a master class on ensemble singing to vocal ensembles from the region. Progress and development in ensemble singing will be explored by interviewing the musicians and collecting audience responses. Furthermore research techniques central to the network will be demonstrated that measure auditory and visual aspects of expressive communication. The day is realised under supervision of Dr Helena Daffern, network member and chair of the society, and other network members.
