    Post A Question About Chest Voice

    Hello,

    I’m a new member from Greece. I really love opera music and that’s why I’m here. I really love singers like Pavarotti, Alfredo Kraus,Di Stefano,Enrico Caruso and of course Maria Callas. But I would like to learn from people that have musical education.I have read on the internet many things about chest voice in opera music.

    My question is how often males like tenors or baritones use chest voice and how often females use it? Why tenors sing the higher notes with head voice? Can a tenor sing with chest voice? I would like to learn from more experienced people. Callas said that bel canto is about singing chest notes too.

    If somebody knows it please enlight me.

    Thank you a lot!

    Unfortunately I can't answer your question but I hope someone else can. In the meantime, I would like to welcome you to the forum and I look forward to reading your posts. You have mentioned some of your favourite singers but do you have any favourite composers and operas?

    Welcome to the forum, Tolis. Alas, I'm no expert on chest voice vs. head voice either. I suspect our site owner, Luiz, will be able to say a bit more on the topic.
