New York Voices ensemble to perform at BGSU

BOWLING GREEN, O.—The last two summers brought singers to the Bowling Green State University campus from as far away as Japan, South Africa and France to rehearse and perform together at the New York Voices Vocal Jazz Camp.

From Aug. 1-7, the camp will again feature the intense and unique blend of the New York Voices ensemble’s singing and soloist virtuosity in both teaching and performing. The multi-Grammy Award winners will present a series of concerts, all in Bryan Recital Hall in the Moore Musical Arts Center. 

Members Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader and Kim Nazarian will each present material from their solo projects and recordings, culminating in an ensemble performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6. Tickets are $15 at the door.

Kicking off the week, the hosting ensemble, the BGSU Jazz Singers, and camp faculty members Morgen Stiegler, Chris Buzzelli and Doug Neel will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1.

On Aug. 2, Kinhan and Eldridge will bring their sophisticated sounds to the Bowling Green audience in a joint concert beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door. 

Wednesday night (Aug. 3) will bring a free, 8 p.m. performance by camp faculty and New York Voices “fifth voice” Greg Jasperse.

At 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4, Nazarian will 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. Tickets are $5 at the door.

Friday, Aug. 5, will feature highlights from select 2011 campers in a free 8 p.m. concert.

Wrapping up the week on Saturday, Aug. 6, the Camp Ensembles will perform free at 3:30 p.m., and then New York Voices will make their final appearance that evening.
