Measuring the Voice – An interactive lecture
Professor Michael Fuchs will be offering a scientific yet highly accessible exploration of singing and the voice, a unique highlight of our programme. As the head of the Phoniatrics and Audiology Section at Leipzig University Hospital, Professor Fuchs, an erstwhile member of St Thomas’s Boys Choir and a long-standing associate of the a cappella Festival, annually brings fresh and expansive insights from his research and experience as a voice specialist to the festival. In 2024, Professor Fuchs will be warmly inviting attendees – including members of the audience – to delve into their own voices from a scientific standpoint under the theme ‘Measuring the Voice’. Participants will be able to analyse their vocal range, discover their voice’s frequencies and functions, and gain fascinating insights. Don’t forget to put the a cappella Lecture on your personal festival itinerary!
