MEDIA REVIEWS
The Solo Singer in the Choral Setting: A Handbook of Practical Ideas for Achieving Vocal Health, by Margret Olson, is chock full of probative insights and singular advice for the voice teacher and choral conductor. Specifically, the message is the care and feeding of the solo singer in the voice studio and the choral rehearsal, taking into account myriad potential emotional, intellectual, and egocentric mine fields that must be skillfully navigated. It is refreshing to read a book about singing replete with new ideas. Each chapter will be of particular interest to the voice teacher, conductor, and nascent voice student. Olson, obviously a teacher, leads the reader through theoretical to practical solutions about singing, presenting a benign litany of issues /solutions/teaching examples format, concluding many chapters with appropriate and useful vocalizes. -- Dr. Carroll Gonzo, Editor, Choral Journal
The Solo Singer in the Choral Setting covers a wide range of issues, and it is characterized by a reasonable tone, both in the author's attitude toward choral singing, and the nature of the counsel offered to singers who must perform as both soloists and choristers.... With this volume, Olson has made a valuable contribution to the dialogue. * Journal of Singing *
