BGSU’s College of Musical Arts Hosts New York Voices Vocal Jazz Camp

The last two summers brought singers from as far as Japan, South Africa and France to rehearse, sing and perform together to the BGSU campus for the New York Voices Vocal Jazz Camp. From August 1-7 the 6-day camp will again feature the intense and unique blend of New York Voices ensemble singing and soloist virtuosity in both teaching and performing. In its third year, the multi-Grammy winners return to their BGSU camp to teach and perform with a total of six nights of concerts:

In featured concerts, Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader and Kim Nazarian, will present material from their solo projects and recordings. On August 1st hosting ensemble BGSU Jazz Singers and the BGSU camp faculty Morgen Stiegler, Chris Buzzelli and Doug Neel will perform at 8 pm.

On the 2nd Kinhan and Eldridge will bring their sophisticated sounds to the Bowling Green audience in a joint concert. Wednesday night will include a feature performance by camp faculty and ‘5th Voice’ Greg Jasperse, while Thursday night, Aug. 4th will have Nazarian present selections from her upcoming album as well as a tribute to Mr. Rogers, alongside Meader’s awe-inspiring virtuosity on both the vocal mic and tenor saxophone.

Friday August 5th will feature highlights from select 2011 campers and on August 6th the Camp Ensembles perform at 3:30 pm and then New York Voices live at BGSU will return as the staple music experience of the camp. For more information, please see
