Campus Voices sing Jazz
An eight week sequence of rehearsals focusing on choral jazz, at the University of Reading, Whiteknights campus.
Explore the musical revolution through the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s and into the 60’s with Campus Voices sings Jazz.
Campus Voices is a flexible, open access group singing a range of choral music. The group rehearse weekly at lunchtimes, and perform at a range of informal events on campus. Campus Voices aspires to be an enjoyable and relaxed opportunity for everyone to come together and sing, and to promote wellbeing and open access to music within the University community.
Singers will explore the different styles of vocal jazz music, and develop musicianship and vocal skills through fun games and songs, before performing in the local community.
Sheet music will be used, so some familiarity with note reading is useful but not required.
Repertoire is likely to include:
- It Don’t Mean a Thing, Duke Ellington
- Autumn Leaves, Nat King Cole
- Sway, Dean Martin
- Ain’t That a Kick in the Head, Dean Martin
Rehearsals take place 13:10-13:50 on Tuesdays at Whiteknights Campus, and Thursdays at London Road campus.
