New York Voices returns to Europe in the summer of 2019 with their exciting and popular vocal jazz camp. After two successful years hosted in Ptuj, Slovenia, they are bringing the camp to the beautiful Bavarian Music Academy in Marktoberdorf, Germany, from August 25-31. Aspiring jazz vocalists have a great opportunity to work and sing with the foremost vocal jazz quartet of our time in this six-day music intensive.
This unique camp is open to high school and college students, professional musicians, choral directors and anyone interested in improving and further developing their knowledge of the vocal jazz genre. Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader, Peter Eldridge and Kim Nazarian will work with singers in clinics, ensemble classes, one on one coachings and special interest electives pertaining to the art and performance of vocal jazz. Pre-established vocal groups are welcome and encouraged to attend. In addition to the New York Voices, the camp faculty will include long time friends and master educators such as Matthias Becker (Teacher & Conductor of Auditor Choir) and Anne Czichowsky (Teacher & Camp Director). The campers will be accompanied by wonderful musicians (p, b, dr) from the pool of the Bavarian Youth Jazz Big Band (LJJB).
