This Auditioned Jazz Choir is for the advanced High School Student
and Adult singer. This choir rehearses from April through September to prepare
for an August ‘Voices In Harmony’ concert and various venues throughout
the fall. Prior jazz experience is not necessary; however a strong singing
background is a prerequisite. Each participant must commit to weekly rehearsals
to develop proper tone & harmonic strength and to prepare memorized arrangements
with confidence. Singers are required to use a rehearsal CD to learn parts
on their own as an active member. Auditions are held for vacancies in the choir
only. Contact the conductor FMI Rehearsal Schedule & Performance information.
