What an interesting question. It would be great to hear an expert opinion. FWIW, I have read some articles that suggest that volitional control of vibrato is possible. There are even experiments whereby singers with different vibrato "types" attempted to match the characteristics of each other's vibrato, with some success esp. in the mid range.

That's not a theory, of course it is possible.

Perhaps I should say that volitional control of the various acoustic characteristics of vibrato is possible. I am way out of my comfort zone chatting about this, but my impression is that it is not a very straight forward affair. BruceD is saying the same thing, I believe.
