Tri-C JazzFest Presents Award-Winning Gold Company at Vocal Jazz Day
Vocal jazz ensemble brings energy and tradition to Metro Campus Feb. 17
Western Michigan University’s award-winning Gold Company will perform in Cleveland later this month as part of Tri-C Vocal Jazz Day, hosted by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
The free concert takes place at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17 (Presidents Day) in the John P. Murphy Foundation Theatre at Tri-C’s Metropolitan Campus. It is part of a series of events leading up to the 41st annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, presented by KeyBank.
Gold Company features students whose majors range from jazz studies to vocal performance, music education, music therapy and more. The vocal jazz group performed at the famed Monterey Jazz Festival in 2018. It is directed by Greg Jasperse.
“This ensemble carries a reputation as one of the world’s best,” said Terri Pontremoli, director of Tri-C JazzFest. “They carry on the vocal tradition ignited by Lambert, Hendricks & Ross and furthered by groups like the Manhattan Transfer and Take 6.”
Tickets are free and can be reserved at vocaljazzday2020.eventbrite.com. Parking is available in Lot 5 off of Woodland Avenue.
The concert is a highlight of Tri-C Vocal Jazz Day, where more than 100 students will participate in adjudicated performances and workshops. The event supports the educational mission of Tri-C JazzFest to present opportunities to learn from world-class artists.
