The Jeanie LoVetri Show: Our Vocal Universe

The Jeanie LoVetri Show: Our Vocal Universe is a new program currently on Manhattan Neighborhood Network's MNN HD, the community channel. The program features interviews with experts in the world of voice in all its forms. Upcoming shows will feature guests who are actors, speech teachers, medical doctors who deal with the voice (laryngologists), speech language pathologists with expertise in voice, choral conductors, music educators, voice science researchers, announcers, clergy, singers and others who rely upon the voice in their line of work. We may also include writers who must have a unique voice as well. Currently only those living in Manhattan (New York City) can view the shows, but we will soon open a designated YouTube channel to highlight the shows and allow viewers from all over to subscribe to the full episodes. If you would like to suggest a New York City based vocal expert, or if you have someone who is willing to be Skyped in, please contact us. We are open to your feedback and will listen to your comments as we proceed in this exciting new direction. E-Mail

Show #1
Our first guest was Gabriele Tranchina, jazz vocalist and composer and children's music educator.Gabriele shared her exploration of singing in her younger days and how it evolved into working with her own jazz singing in the present. We have two clips of her in performance, both very unique, showing the diversity of her vocal expression and the uniqueness of her style.

Show #2
Our second guest was Jack Eppler, singer, singing teacher and choral conductor. Jack took us on the journey of his own vocal curiosity and his deep love for songs, particularly those that are classical. He also talked about his chorus and how he came to create a non-auditioned group of 70 singers who do performances a year; and have two clips of one of those concerts on view.

Our Vocal Universe hopes to be an inspiration to you and get you thinking about your own voice and your own vocal universe. It's a great topic!
