From Chorister Bill: is a website for choral singers.  In the two years that I have been using the site, I have found several interesting, helpful articles.  Some of the articles are “open access”, others require that you be a subscriber ($19.95/yr) in order to open them.

SingerNetwork is just launching a video series on IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) for singers.  IPA is a useful tool for choral conductors and singers, and this seems like a painless way to learn more about it.  The series will be using examples from Handel’s Messiah to illustrate the information about IPA.  The first video on IPA is “open access”; it is purely introductory.  I do not know if the subsequent instructional videos will be “open access” or for subscribers (I suspect the latter).  In any event, I thought I would pass this information along in the event that some of you might be interested.
