The Vocal Jazz Festival at UW-Stevens Point at Wausau is a non-competitive festival open to both high school and college vocal jazz groups.
Friday, April 12, 2019
Guest Artists/Clinicians: m-pact!!! (www.m-pact.com)
Groups will prepare 2-3 songs to perform on stage with our state-of-the-art sound system and then participate in a clinic with members of the world-renown vocal jazz ensemble m-pact.
In addition to an on-stage clinic, your choir will learn from watching other high school and college groups perform, will attend masterclasses by members of m-pact, will have an opportunity to work on solo singing, and will be given discounted tickets to attend an evening concert by m-pact that you don’t want to miss.
A professional rhythm section will be available to perform with your group if it is desired, and a private YouTube video of your group’s performance will be created so your students can watch their performance and share with family and friends. We hope to see you in April!
Group participation fee is $250. Ticket price to the evening concert at 7pm by m-pact is reduced to $5 for all participating students/teachers!
