Maxfield’s presentation will explore the incredibly versatile instrumental qualities of the human voice. He will explore how two small folds of tissue, coupled with a resonant airway, can produce sounds capable of both lulling an infant to sleep and being heard over a 60-piece orchestra. Maxfield, with the help of C of I voice students, also will demonstrate the properties that give various performance genres their distinctive sounds.Maxfield, a 2005 C of I graduate, holds a master’s in voice performance and a Ph.D. in voice pedagogy from the University of Iowa. In his current position at NCVS, he contributes to a multi-site research consortium committed to research and education about voice and speech. Prior to joining the NCVS, Maxfield taught at Eastern Connecticut State University, Knox College, Monmouth College and Carl Sandburg College in western Illinois. Maxfield is the primary instructor for the vocal studio at NCVS and also maintains an active performance presence. His opera credits include Monastotos in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Sam Polk in Floyd’s Susannah, Orpheus in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, and Guglielmo in Donizetti’s Viva La Mamma. He also sings with the Utah Opera chorus.
