On February 21, Angelle Hall will be alive with jazz vocals and swinging big band sounds when New York Voices appears with the UL Jazz Ensemble. As the Grammy Award-winning vocal quartet wraps up their 25th Anniversary Tour, they will join forces with UL’s 20-piece big band. NYV has traveled the globe, amazing audiences the world over with their impeccable voices, close harmonies, and stunning arrangements. Appearances have included jazz festivals, the Boston Pops, and even the Count Basie Band.
With harmonies reminiscent of the Hi Lo’s, The Four Freshmen, or Manhattan Transfer, the group and their diverse repertoire remain unique. UL band members are hard at work on nine great tunes, ranging from Miles Davis & Louis Prima to Stevie Wonder & Paul Simon. During their 3-day visit, NYV will also conduct clinics & master classes on campus. Sponsors are the UL Concert Series, Friends of the Humanities, SGA Lyceum & Faculty Development Grants, College of the Arts, UL Band & Choral Depts.
