CHOIR VOICING WORKSHOP

Brought to you by the Association of Irish Choirs

Not to be confused with the classification of voices as Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass, the technique known as Choir Voicing was created to assist in generating the optimal blend of the singers in any given ensemble. One of the country’s leading musicians, conductor David Brophy, has said of this technique “Having attended Kevin O’Carroll’s absorbing presentation I’m fully convinced that all choirs should investigate the potential benefits of utilising this subtle and mysterious technique – they will be surprised at the results!” The effect of the technique has been acclaimed as magical, special and transforming.  Kevin has been referred to as ‘The Choir Whisperer” and the Voicing technique has been described as voodoo for choirs! Whether you work with a large amateur group of 120 or an 8 member professional choral ensemble, the technique is equally effective.

The Choir Voicing workshop was a one hour presentation held in an entertaining and collaborative atmosphere where either volunteers or a guest choir were used to demonstrate the technique and explain how it works.
