We appreciate your support!
Welcome to Cabaret Tip Tuesday at McElrath Cabaret, where we offer cabaret performance tips to help you put together a great performance at your next show!
Today I’m thinking about singing as a cabaret entertainer, so my tip for you today is this: when a vowel ending a word preceeds a vowel starting the next word, the first vowel should receive a long vowel pronunciation.
I learned this tip back in my choir-singing days. Take the lyric, “Oh, how lovely is the evening.” You have the word “the,” which ends with an “e,” followed by the word “evening.” You would want to pronounce the word “the” in the same way you would the word “thee”–with a long “e” sound. It sounds better when it’s sung in this manner than if you were to sing “the” as in “duh.”
Hope these Tuesday cabaret tips help–let us know what other topics you’d like to see us cover here, and we’ll do our best to work through them!
Do you have any tips that you like to use for singing vowels? Do you have any other cabaret show tips you’d like to share? Do tell down in the comments! We always love to hear from our readers!
