Event Details:

Vocalstra, the University of Toledo Vocal Jazz Ensemble, was founded by legendary jazz vocalist and lyricist Jon Hendricks. The group performs a variety of jazz standards in the vocalese tradition. A style made famous by Jon Hendricks and his trio Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, vocalese is a genre of jazz singing in which lyrics are set to entire instrumental recordings. Known as the James Joyce of Jive and the Poet Laureate of Jazz, Jon Hendricks is one of the most highly regarded lyricists in the jazz tradition.

Founded in 2000, Vocalstra is honored to continue his legacy, through singing his music along with other jazz classics. Vocal jazz night at the Black Kite will feature a selection of solo jazz standards, duets, and small group performances, and will be an evening packed with great performances by University of Toledo students, and members of the community. Come one, Come all!
