Why are you interested in joining the Vocal Brilliance Meetup Group?

I like to sing but have not done so in a very long while except in the car like everyone else. The chance to start again with like-minded individuals is tempting.

What is your background and experience as a singer? Do you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate, or advanced? What style(s) of singing do you prefer? Have you trained, or is the idea of voice training new to you?

I have an old background, so to speak. Long ago, I sang in the Jr. HS chorus and was tagged an alto. In HS I didn't sing in a chorus just for myself having done badly in Jr. HS. In college, the chorus needed bodies and I tried out and sang with the tenors. After that first round of college, I joined the St. Luke in the Fields chorus in lower Manhattan. There I got (finally) pegged as a soprano, which worked out much better but I only stayed in it for 1 season. Several years after that, during one of the times I lost my voice (something that happened several times in my life due to undiagnosed allergies) after voice therapy, the doctor said I needed a singing teacher to get my full range back. She was a professional opera singer and as we got my full range back said I was a (I don't remember) either a coloratura soprano or (but I don't think so) a lyric soprano. But that was some 30 years ago and with no constant use plus age doing it's thing, I have no idea what I would be now.

If you have any specific goals you are hoping to accomplish, or ideas for Meetups you'd like to see scheduled, feel free to list them. (:

I would like to "get my voice back", find out my current full range and fix what has be called my "ear" problem. Because I had (with work) a 4 octave range and I hear very well and consider each note in each octave a distinct note, I had trouble staying in my own vocal group. i.e. stick me in with altos and I hear altos, sopranos and tenors and whomever is singing loudest, my voice will follow that. This is not playing well with others in a chorus. I'd like to fix this permanently. It's not that I was off key, just all over the place. Now, who knows what my voice can do? I presume not much.

If you have any online presences (website, MySpace, You Tube, etc.) featuring you or your music that you'd like to share with other group members, please feel free to list them.

No, not a chance.

How did you hear about (Meetup, Google, Facebook, Twitter, a magazine or newspaper, some guy yelling on the street, etc...)?

I got an email inviting me to join since I was a member of another meetup group.


Hi, I used to like to sing a long time ago. A wicked baker and cook. I'm a geek girl, read SF&F, have cats, and this year married 30 yrs. In my life I have ridden motorcycles, loved downhill skiing, been a jogger, & suffer all the damage to prove it.
