Vocal Jazz Offerings

Jazz Arts Voices Ensemble

The Jazz Arts Voices is an inspiring 16-piece mixed vocal ensemble and so much more; it’s a meaningful musical experience.

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.

Fall 2017’s session takes place Monday evenings from 7-9pmSeptember 25-November 27 (except for Nov 20) and will include two performances in December, TBA. The session will be led by two members of the Sharp Five, Camilla Vaitaitis and Brendan Schuster, with special clinics from guest artists Hazel Miller and Wendy Fopeano. Register for Fall 2017 Jazz Arts Voices Ensemble Here
