Description

“Put on your best voice and step on stage!” All performers have heard that pep talk before talent shows or community theatre productions. But what is a performative voice? What does it sound like? Does it improve with legal, oratorical, or vocal training? Should poetical form be delivered naturally or in a manner showcasing its aesthetic nature? Were organists and choirmasters, who sometimes wrote early plays, looking for a certain quality of sound, a rhythm we should try to understand? Frank M. Napolitano
