The participants of the a cappella Contest are given the chance to take part in an additional seminar by Prof. Dr. Michael Fuchs. It will provide a brief overview of the mechanisms by which we handle and control our voice. Special regard will be paid to the interaction of hearing, the specific physical sensations of the voice (e.g. muscle tension and mucosal texture) and regulatory processes in the brain. The young vocal ensembles also may consult Prof. Dr. Michael Fuchs with problems they possibly have while singing.


The seminar and consultations are not open to the public.


After the seminar Prof. Dr. Michael Fuchs will give a lecture on the following topic: "What conduces to the health and maintenance of the voice? - myths and truths." (Please note: This lecture will be held in German.)
