  1. Identifying Classical Music
    I have racked my brains and ears trying to identify this piece of music. It is from a 1970 recording of my high school choir in Port Washington, NY. None of the former members can remember it. We thought it might be Brahms. Below is a link to the recording. I thought we sounded pretty good...
  2. Opera
    It struck me the fact that when we speak and think about opera we first think about arias, duos, trios, etc, about our dearest soloist singers, primas, etc but CORO is such an indispensable part of any opera at least traditional opera ( well, now no talk about singspiel and other different...
  3. Solved Cases (archive)
    Which one????? Little 4 second melody: I am having trouble finding it. :(
  4. Non-Classical Music
    This is my favorite melodic-speed/neoclassical/symphonic/power metal band at the moment, but mostly due to their first two albums with the female vocalist (which is strange because usually I'm not into female vocals). Their songs might not be overwhelmingly impressive for a serious highbrow...
  5. Voice and Choir
    I practiced over the years and am quite good. But never had vocal training from a professional. I live in Seattle and here they have men's chorus, Seattle symphony. I feel so intimidated. How can I get trained professionally?

    Mahler's Eighth Symphony: The Development of the Chorus Mysticus Mahler's Eighth has a strong reputation, partially deserved and partially undeserved, for being the outlier in the composer's symphonic oeuvre. It also carries the entirely undeserved reputation of being a gargantuan...
  9. Orchestral Music
    I really want to avoid asking so vague of a question and sounding ignorant of orchestral music and the greats that have composed them, but as a musical novice only starting to have in interest in orchestral music I find myself in a predicament. I absolutely love orchestral music, however, there...
  10. Vocal Music
    I'm getting married in a few months and my friend's husband is putting together an 8-voice choir for us. All of the typical wedding music require accompaniment, so do you have any suggestions for an cappella wedding? The choir will sing at the processional, maybe once during the service, and...
