Our Boychoir director and Baritone soloist Riley McMitchell, made us all laugh at rehearsal recently when he shared this story: Riley was singing in Germany, and feeling tense about his singing. From Germany, he phoned his teacher in Indiana- the Romanian soprano and master vocal coach Virginia Zeani. Over the phone lesson, she said to Riley:
Riley says that it’s funny how such a simple thing makes such a difference. It really does solve a lot of vocal issues. “It’s one of the things I always come back to when something isn’t working… especially in a performance situation.”
Put it in the “oooh” position. See what happens with YOUR singing! Maybe your life will improve too!
Thanks for sharing this wisdom Riley!
