About vocal music of the concert hall
This page is intended to be the vocal/choral/opera counterpart of the instrumental music page. Please contribute collections of authoritative, authentic free and open media (online video or audio) of vocal music (choral, opera, solo voice, chamber voice, art song, Broadway musicals, etc.) for this page using the Contact form. Please assure that the links are designated as open source, or have been authorized by the content creator. This is intended as a media repository page--collections of vocal music audio and video recordings not separate, individual performances. Individual performances can be posted under another section.
