STRANGE REVVING NOISE WHEN ACCELERATING I

1996 Toyota Camry

Noises problem
1996 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77000 miles

Starting about a week ago, my car has been making a revving noise whenever I accelerate from about 20 mph to 60 mph. It only happens when I'm holding the acceleration pedal and stops as I let off the gas. The noise is more akin to a strong " race car" rev rather than a high pitched noise, and it's coming from the front of the car. The noise does not occur when I step on the gas when my car is in park; only when the car is actually driving between 20 mph to 60 mph. It makes it sound as if I'm severely overworking the car when I'm barely just accelerating to highway speeds. It used to be much more quiet.

Thanks for any help given
