Presentation: Linda Lister
Linda Lister (Music) presented a lecture at the 2017 International Congress of Voice Teachers in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this month. Titled "Sizeism and Singing: Obesity and Anorexia from Opera to Pop," her lecture examined views on high and low weight through discussion of the issues faced by singers like Deborah Voigt, Jessye Norman, Maria Callas, Karen Carpenter, Amy Winehouse, and Adele, since both classical and pop singers now face increased scrutiny of their weight in an industry where both voice and size matter. Lister is the director of the UNLV Opera Theater.
