Opera singers are helping people with Covid recover. Covid does a lot of damage to some people’s lungs. Those people end up having a really hard time breathing and even suffering affects like blood clots for a long time after recovering. So, the opera singers are hosting classes where they do opera exercises to teach patients how to breathe better. I was interested because breathing is big part of what I do on the radio and because I do a lot of reading for commercials. But, it’s pretty much only accessible to patients who’ve been referred by a doctor. However, I did find a very interesting video on how to warm up your voice. It’s kind of fun to watch as the opera singer makes some of the exercise sounds. If nothing else, it might make you better at karaoke.
