This is probably the manliest version I've ever heard of The Trumpet Shall Sound.

This is a good example of an all male choir from the nation of male choirs - Wales.

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

From the show Britain's Got Talent we get this clip of a group of young men singing traditional Welsh music.  There are many things to recommend about this group.  I particularly like the conductor. …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.

From the Kitchen To An Office

Firstly, this would be my first posting to AoM and posting to any sort of forum in many years for that matter.I am currently on the outs (mentally) of my current job in a local restaurant here in California. I like the people that I work with, aside from the owner, but this is definitely not a reason that would cause me to want to stay. If I did that, it would be a great detriment for myself. I feel that there is not much room for me to progress where I I'm at. You will always hear that if you…See More
