If you sing in a community choir or would like to get back into singing, this class is for you. Join Robert Isaacs, talented director of Cornell's Glee Club and Chorus, voice coach for more than twenty years, former musical director of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, and a Grammy-nominated performer.

Using a variety of games, exercises, and pieces selected once the class is assembled, Robert will focus on ear training, sight reading, choral vocal techniques, effective markings, the basics of conducting, and new approaches to tuning the voice. Whether your skills are modest or advanced, come raise your voice and your vocal game. Registration is first-come, first-served with adjustments for vocal balance.
