Vocal Fold Information

Vocal Fold Information

Did you know that the male vocal folds – not chords – are a different size then female vocal folds? Adult male voices are lower pitched because they have vocal folds that are longer and thicker.  Their vocal folds can be up to 1 inch long! Female vocal folds can be up to 3/4 of an inch long!

We are curious if different vocal fachs have different vocal folds.  For instance, what makes Obed’s vocal folds different than a lyric tenor’s since he is a heldentenor?  This is something that would be very interesting to research.
