Binghamton University presentation to highlight Melocchi vocal technique
A presentation highlighting some of the world's finest recordings of voices trained under the Melocchi method will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 21, in room 170 of the Fine Arts building on the Binghamton University campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Titled "From Lion to Mouse; the Melocchi Method," the presentation will feature recordings from the University's Frances R. Conole Archives, which is devoted to the preservation of 20th century vocal art recorded over the last 90 years. Recordings to be highlighted include those of famous singers such as Mario Del Monaco, who started off with a ‘small voice’, but through the radical Melocchi technique were able to expand his sound with remarkable results.
Tom MacDonald from the Binghamton Bel Canto Society will lead the discussion. For more information, contact MacDonald at 607-724-8250
