ALBUQUERQUE, NM, February 15, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Live Online March 11, 2022 at 1:00pm Pacific time, Celebrate Singing for Women continues to gather inspiring experts on choral singing, voice health and more!
Celebrate Singing's March 11 presenters, including Dr. Jenevora Williams, U.K. and Director Kath Williams, Australia, will inspire participants with the latest research and best-practices available for women who sing through midlife and the directors who support them. Registrants will personally interact with these experts, sing with them and hear their unique insights on vocal health through menopause and beyond.
Dr Jenevora Williams will address women on 'Why singing so good for your health and happiness?: An exploration of evidence from evolution, endocrinology, neurology and sociology.'
Dr. Williams is a leading expert in the field of vocal health and singing teaching. After a successful career in Opera, she turned her attention to investigating healthy and efficient vocal function. The combination of academic study and practical experience has resulted in a unique perception for understanding the human voice. She was the first singing teacher to be awarded a PhD in voice science in the UK, and won the 2010 BVA Van Lawrence Prize for her outstanding contribution to voice research. Her book, 'Teaching Singing to Children and Young Adults', has been enormously popular with singing teachers throughout the world. She is well-known for her imaginative and rigorous international training courses for singing teachers and voice professionals. She now runs Vocal Health Education and Evolving Voice. As a teacher of singing, she works with professional singers of all ages in both voice rehabilitation and career mentoring.
Director Kath Williams is presenting 'The Inner Singer in You!' As she approaches her third decade involved in the Australian Music Industry as a player, singer, director, performer and facilitator, Kath Williams' passion for singing gets stronger every day! Kath's love of singing and a desire for further knowledge led her to undertake post graduate studies in Contemporary Voice Pedagogy at QLD Conservatorium from 2011-2014. Having completed her Masters degree, Kath is a Specialist Voice teacher and Vocal Health Consultant and is the Sunshine Coast delegate for ANATS (Australian National Association of Teachers of Singing).
Opening this online event, Nancy Bos, vocalogist and author, will direct a group sing of the new Celebrate Singing Theme Song; a song written by Chris McCafferty with lyrics by Kath Williams.
For cis-females, voice maturation doesn't end in the teen-age years. Many singers will go on to experience predictable voice fluctuations during the menstrual cycle. The 8-10 year-long menopausal transition's potential effects on singing voices are subject to a "strange secretiveness" in the pedagogic and performance communities. Celebrate Singing for Women events ease this disconnect between experts and singers. The international reach of the Celebrate Singing for Women brand allows the work to bring hope, community and strength to women to keep their voices strong.

Nancy Bos, CEO of StudioBos Media, is building on her professional connections in the United States, the UK, Europe, and Australia, in the areas of vocal pedagogy, laryngology, speech language pathology, vocal research, psychology, somatic education, yoga, naturopathy, and performance. She has assembled academicians, researchers, and professionals to present workshops and events through this new company division, Celebrate Singing for Women. This is fast on the heels of a highly successful three-day conference built around the co-authored book, Singing Through Change – Women's Voices in Midlife, Menopause and Beyond.
The Celebrate Singing for Women in Midlife & Beyond division strives to inform all women, ages 35 & beyond, of these valuable new research results:
• How to counter the physical and neurological changes that can cause speech and singing, to noticeably slow down.
• Why aging and menopause affect the voice differently and what it means for women.
• The mind-body connection methods to keep the voice strong.
