Event Description

New York Voices was born in the mid-1980s at upstate New York’s Ithaca College. Peter Eldridge, an aspiring jazz pianist who came late to singing; Kim Nazarian, who dreamed of a life on Broadway; and Darmon Meader, a saxophonist and self-described “choral geek,” came together in the school’s vocal jazz ensemble. Director Dave Reilly included all three of them, as well as Caprice Fox, in an ensemble he’d been invited to bring on a tour of European jazz festivals. They made the transition to New York City and in 1988 met Sara Krieger, who became the fifth member of the band. They have collaborated with institutions such as the Count Basie Orchestra, Paquito d’Rivera, and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band.

They have also launched a jazz education initiative for aspiring jazz singers. They will be conducting a two-day workshop with local area students which will culminate with a performance at the Opera House.

Tickets are $35/$40/$45 (Side/Center/Premium)
