Jazz Arts Voices Ensemble
While singing in the vocal ensemble, members of Jazz Arts Voices can expect to increase their knowledge of the history and language of the jazz art form through the study and transcription of classic works of the masters. They will subsequently develop the intuition and confidence to improvise, perform, and collaborate with both vocalists and instrumentalists well versed in the jazz idiom.
The Spring session is February 5 – April 16 (except February 19, March 26 and April 2), with performances at the UNC/Greeley Jazz Festival (April 19) and the CCJA Jazz-O-Rama (April 24).The session will be led by two members of the Sharp Five, Camilla Vaitaitis and Brendan Schuster, with special clinics from guest artists. Total cost: $240 per participant, payable two installments of $120
