getting female belters to blend in SATB choir
Date: April 14, 2014
I am the choral director of an non-auditioned adolescent SATB choir in southern Maine. Recently I have noticed that as the group has been solidifying parts and starting to blend with eachother that a few female voices stick out more and more. These girls belt higher notes in the vain of musical theater unlike the rest of the choir, who sing in more of a head voice. I have tried a number of different methods to get these girls to blend in such as moving above their belt down into the middle range and working at softer dynamics, but nothing has been particularly successful. Does anyone have any advice for how to get these girls to blend with the rest of their sections?
