Alto in CBB-Kigali

The alto voice is the lowest female voice. The alto is the second-highest of the four voice types, sitting above the tenor but below the soprano. In a choir, alto describes the lowest singing part written for a female voice. While the range can vary a bit by singer, the typical range for the alto voice is the F or G below middle C, to second D above middle C. Incidentally, musical instruments that naturally fall in this range can sometimes also be called altos, as in the alto saxophone. In a choir, alto describes the lowest singing part written for a female voice. A true operatic contralto is rare, so much so that often roles intended for contralto are performed by mezzo-sopranos. The typical contralto range lies between F3 (the F below middle C) to F5 (the second F above middle C). In the lower and upper extremes some contralto voices can sing from D3 (the D below middle C) to B♭ 5 (the second B-flat above), one whole step short of the soprano high C.
