The human voice is the oldest musical instrument. But how exactly does it work? Voice training is a lot more complicated than you might think, and in this podcast, opera singer Matthan Ring Black discusses why. A baritone with decades of experience as a performer, Matthan gets into the science behind how the human voice works, with some bonus insights into the worlds of vocal pedagogy and opera.
Matthan has performed in venues around the world and in several Chicago premieres, including the world premiere of Gregory Spears' "Jason and the Argonauts" with the Lyric Opera of Chicago's Lyric Unlimited. He is also a founding member of Chicago Fringe Opera and is collaborating with composer Ross Crean for the international recording of his new opera, "The Great God Pan."
