Vocalogy tour under way

Hello Friends!

The Vocalogy tour is going swimmingly so far. We got stuck in the snow on the way to perform at the New Hampshire All-State Jazz Festival. We met thousands of teenagers at the Berklee High School Jazz Festival.

Today is the day of the big contest. All season long, the sides have been preparing, refining, testing. Yes, it's the 2016 Crepe-Off. Who will win, John's recipe or mine? More eggs, or more flour, or a balanced attack? How much sugar, if any? Which toppings add or detract? Chocolate? Berries? Butter and sugar? Does anyone have the courage to go plain? Time will tell.

With the breaking of the day tomorrow, we resume our march through New England. We only have two public events, so make sure you come to one of them.

 

Monday, February 8

7:00 - 8:30pm

Wellesley High School Katherine L. Babson Jr. Auditorium.

50 Rice St, Wellesley, MA 02481

The opening act for this concert will be the most excellent Wellesley High School Rice Street Singers under the direction of Kevin McDonald.

 

Tuesday, February 9

8:30-11:30pm

Ryles Jazz Club

212 Hampshire St, Cambridge, MA 02139

Get your $15 tickets on-line or at the door

At Ryles, Vocalogy will get a chance to stretch out. In addition to our harmony vocal tunes, we will feature some soloists. In Los Angeles, Christine Guter can often be heard performing with her trio, with big bands, and on many film scores (you have probably heard her voice if you've been to the movies lately). She will be offering up some music from her book of cool jazz interpretations. Yours truly (David) will be singing tunes you may have heard from the Hopeful Romantic and DYAD albums. And we will have one more guest sit in on a few songs, the fabulous singer, pianist, and songwriter Peter Eldridge. (Peter sings with a group called New York Voices.)

 

After that we finish off the tour at some events not open to the public, including school performances and the American Choral Directors Association conference in Boston (also appearing: the amazing Roomful Of Teeth!). Choral director friends, please come say hi.

 

Whew! Then that's it for a while. Much needed rest to follow :-)

give me your contact info so I can email you when cool things happen
