According to one reviewer, Choral Charisma tackles an issue that is "without question, one of the biggest problems facing choral music today -- lack of connection to the music and to the audience." Other reviewers have described the book as "really outstanding," "truly wonderful," "recommended unequivocally," and suggested that "every choir director should read it." This is the first and only book of its kind. What has historically been a somewhat mysterious and misunderstood process becomes clear, concise, and easy to follow as the author adapts state-of-the-art acting techniques to choral singing. Written for choir directors, singers, voice teachers, and even stage directors, this book presents fresh techniques to help singers be more facially, physically, and vocally expressive. Using the principles fleshed out in the book, singers will be able to affect audiences more powerfully and poignantly -- and sing "better than we've ever sung before." One director summed up the results this way: "My group just became the choir I've always wanted to direct."
