Albertson College Vocal Jazz Ensemble Invited to Return to Carnegie Hall Next Spring

2003. 05. 28.

CALDWELL, ID- The Albertson College of Idaho Vocal Jazz Ensemble, which performed in Carnegie Hall in 2002, has been invited to return to participate in the Eighth Annual Vocal Jazz Festival at Carnegie Hall in New York City next April.

The ensemble will perform with a dozen other ensembles from throughout North America. The Albertson College group was chosen for the festival based on the group's outstanding performances in the past, and on its 'quality and high level of musicianship.'

The ensemble, conducted by Albertson College professor of music Marianne Saunders, will participate in workshops and then present a concert in Carnegie Hall on April 5.

In 2002, two ensemble members were selected to perform solos with the combined vocal jazz choir during the concert.

For more information, contact Saunders at 459-5877 or via email at msaunders@collegeofidaho.edu.
