Laurel Irene

Laurel Irene, Los Angeles-based "astounding...downright superhuman" (LA Times) vocal artist and voice researcher, specializes in bringing new compositional works to life with vocal repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Mozart to wacky, wild, and extreme sounds of the 21st century. With incredible vocal range, agile flexibility, and "resigned, compassionate, forbearing, affectionate, sympathetic, absolving" (LA Times) emotional connection that stretches from playful to unhinged in the span of a page, she draws on her expertise in vocal research to heighten unique timbres, textures, and vocal expressions. Through her organization, VoiceScienceWorks, she gives voice workshops at conferences and collegiate settings across the United States and Europe, including the Pan-American Vocology Association, American Choral Directors Association, and the Acoustic Society of America.
