This concert features music composed for voices and string ensemble. What is it about stringed instruments that works so well with the human voice?

The string family is often compared to the human voice, and with good reason. Take the violin, for example. The motion of the bow against the strings acts as the “fuel” needed (respiratory system) to create vibrations through the bridge (phonatory system) which are then enhanced by the f-holes and shaped by the tuning pegs, adjuster, and specific finger placement (resonatory system). 

Just like humans have very different voices, the string family also carries unique sounds, from the highly pitched violin that can resemble a soprano to the double bass covering the deepest of singers. CEENTA
