Halacha - kol isha (listening to women sing)
Submitted by chaim clorfene  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

The Gemorra in Berachos 24A deduces this halacha from the pasuk in Shir HaShirim that lists a melodious voice as an attractive feature. Shulchan Aruch brings this halacha in Even HaEzer 21:1. In the pasuk you quote from Ezra that there were male and female singers to accompany those who travelled from Bavel to build the second Beis HaMikdash it does not say that they sang together, presumably the women singers sang separately to entertain the women travelers.
