An added pressure for me as chorus master is to have the best vocal production possible due to the added pressure and honor of having a CBC broadcast. Often this aspect of the process becomes less important during the staging, as chorus members are working on movement and dramatic intent, forgetting the finer musical nuances worked in the preceding months. My job is to remind and refocus the chorus to rich full bodied sound after all of the staging is in place. I am so looking forward to having Henry and Ty’s input in this exciting production of this masterpiece.
P.S. Check out a great video of our chorus rehearsing for Turandot!
