W. Stephen Smith’s “The Naked Voice”

The Naked Voice, from

Not a novel, but a quite serious book on considering the whole singer instead of just their vocal folds.  Smith’s students include Joyce DiDonato and Christine Brewer.  He taught at Juilliard, but beginning in 2011 will be teaching at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL.

From a favored dictionary, Noah Webster wrote:

NAKED, a. Open, discovered, to strip.

Not covered; bare … open; exposed …

Plain; evident; undisguised…

“The secret in singing

lies between the vibration in the singer’s voice

and the throb in the hearer’s heart.”

Kahlil Gibran

Police officers believe that trees and landscaping can instill community pride and help cool tempers that sometimes erupt during long, hot summers.

Got green?
