Event Information

When a singer becomes ill, the stakes can be high, and medical management by a laryngologist isn’t always a realistic option. This predicament leaves many questions without obvious answers. How can a singer know if it is reasonable to proceed with performance during an unwelcomed upper respiratory illness or other issue impacting voice production? Are there strategies to promote safer performance in the setting of mild illness? What can be done to optimize vocal efficiency during and after a performance? This presentation will provide a general framework for singers and teachers highlighting some practical strategies and guard rails to help navigate the predicament that every singer finds themselves in at some point in their singing groups.
