RESONATOR The third part of the voice is the resonator. It consists, for the most part, of what is called the vocal tract, that is: the pharynx and mouth. The pharynx has three parts: the laryngeal pharynx, the oral pharynx, and the nasal pharynx. The nasal passages play a role in some vowels and consonants to be mentioned later. The sinuses are not resonators. It may feel as if they are but that is only sympathetic resonance and does not play a role in determining voice quality. Each singer has a unique set of sympathetic vibrations. The harmonic series Fundamental:…

A former refugee who moved to Canada in 1983, Lithuanian-born Kanovich arrived with two kids and $300 in his pocket. He also came with his work ethic. After a short stint of odd jobs, he was hired by the “compassionate” owner of a small IT company he met at his synagogue.…

Considering the sheer number of valentines who were happy and surprised to get these special messages, it is safe to say that the event was a great success. “I found it very cute and touching,” another recipient says.…
