NEW for 2017 -- Jazz Vocal Repertory Ensemble
NEW FOR 2017–2018! An additional ensemble has been created for this coming year called Jazz Vocal Repertory Ensemble (JVRE). As compared to the Jazz Vocal Ensemble (JVE), which will be limited to 12 select singers and specialize in advanced repertoire (levels IV-VI), the Jazz Vocal Repertory Ensemble (JVRE) will focus on more foundational jazz choir repertoire (levels I-IV, higher as appropriate) and be open to any student who can qualify by audition. Membership is flexible, not limited to a set number. Rehearsals occur MW 6:00–6:50 for a total of 2 hours per week. (Attendance at every rehearsal is expected, of course.)
Because this is a new ensemble, numerous logistical details will be solidified as audition results clarify membership and further determine the material to be sung. However, as of June 15, 2017, repertoire has been chosen for the first concert, which will occur on Monday, December 11, 2017, 7:00pm in Hockett Recital Hall. This is an exciting development in the Jazz Vocal Ensemble program here at Ithaca College!
