#WordWednesday: Tessitura

TessituraTESSITURA (9 Scrabble points) – Latin – Where is your voice most comfortable? Do you find yourself singing high notes easier than low notes or are low notes your bread and butter? The answer to these questions is what’s called tessitura in the music world.

This refers to the best-sounding and most comfortable range for a singer, or where the general range of notes in a vocal role tend to lie. Coincidentally, this week teams from several arts, cultural, and entertainment organizations have converged on Florida for The Tessitura Network conference. If you’re there…let us know.

LA Opera is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the greater good.
