Live Performance: Living Voice Concert

On Friday night, I attended the living voice concert. This included performances by Concert Choir, Women’s Chorus, Chamber Singers, and the Gentlemen’s Quartet. The concert was loosely meant to feature living composers. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I kept trying to notice their vocal technique, but it being a good performance, I kept getting caught up in the emotion and beauty of the songs. I did notice that they all took breaths in unison, and would sometimes have to take longer pauses to do so. My favorite part was the Gentlemen’s Quartet. They had such magically blended voices, and each voice added something to the group. Their song “Down and Down” by T. Jones was so touching that I began to tear up listening to it. The other choruses were also fantastic, and I really appreciated the variety of songs and styles presented. Overall, I loved the performance.
