This is probably the manliest version I've ever heard of The Trumpet Shall Sound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYsls-s4GIw

This is a good example of an all male choir from the nation of male choirs - Wales. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-PI_9dDHCg

I am not sure what this signifies or what it means, but it is very significant. This research is evidence that music actually affects how our brain functions on a cellular level. Music is quite…Continue

So who's your favourite male singer, or the singer whom you think is manliest? My favourite is Mario Del Monaco, the singing volcano.   Continue

I thought it might be time to start a discussion with this group, and this seemed like a decent topic. I currently don't sing in any choir, though I am taking classical singing lessons. After over a…Continue

My wife and I celebrated our 27th anniversary this past weekend.  We're both singers, and met in the Dallas Opera Chorus, so that's pretty much where the attraction began (plus, she used to sit in…Continue

Reason number 43,769 why I hate winter: my uvula is all swollen from the dry air! Screws up my voice!

Been singing informally for about 3 years. 2 years in a band, then I joined the Navy choir in Texas when I was going through Corps school and absolutely loved it. To this day I'm a little unsure still as to whether I'm a bass or Tenor 2. My range is very inconsistent for some reason..

I have been singing all my life.   Sing in church choir and studied voice in college.   Baritone

Hello.  I'm a basso who sings with a few local opera companies, and am the section leader in a church choir.  I've also done the occasional musical, and have a latent ambition to be a lounge lizard.

Glad to be here.

I am glad to join this group. I do a lot of musical theater, but enjoy singing all types of music.

Professional classical singer here---and by "professional" I mean only that I generally expect to be paid for my singing, not that I earn enough to live from it!

Gentlemen, I love to sing. But the last few years I have been limited to only singing specials during church services. When I was in college I took private voice lessons and sang in the large choir. Now, I mostly sing to myself. My wife and daughters are much better vocally. I always have to rely on the anointing of the Holy Spirit to stay on key anymore.

Glad to have you aboard, David. I'm sorry if I vanish for extend periods of time. I sing with my church choir and I used to sing at the University that I recently graduated from. I'm also glad to hear that your planning on doing Vocal Music Education.
