How to Sing Silence: Impactful Pauses

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
"Music is the silence between the notes," so says Debussy and, indeed, all of us have experienced the deep emotional impact that a pause in the music can have. But how do you sing silence? How long does a pause need to be? What do you do during the pause? We will discuss these questions with examples from gold medal performances, and talk about how you can sing effective pauses, from a musical and a performance perspective.
