Event Details:

In honor of the late Jon Hendricks - jazz vocalist master and pioneer of "vocalese" - an annual scholarship concert has been created to help students majoring in jazz and in particular, vocal jazz. Guest artist KIM NAZARIAN will perform on this year's concert.

For the past 25 years, Kim Nazarian has been harmonizing all over the world with New York Voices (NYV). “Whether I’m singing with the Boston Pops Orchestra, the Count Basie Orchestra, or the next up and coming rhythm section, it is an honor to make my living in music. I do believe it is my mission in this particular lifetime.”

Along with the many recordings Kim has made with NYV, she is proud to be one of the featured voices on Bobby McFerrin’s “VOCAbuLarieS” CD. Another recent professional highlight is Ms. Nazarian’s collaboration with the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and the Manchester Craftman’s Guild on a concert tour dedicated to the late, great Ella Fitzgerald. Kim also enjoys being part of a special program called “Vocalese,” (created by visionary producer, Larry Rosen), which integrates NYV with Manhattan Transfer, and Jon Hendricks.
