BYU Vocal Jazz Combo wins jazz competition

The Brigham Young University Vocal Jazz Combo was awarded first prize as the outstanding college vocal jazz combo in the open division at the recent Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, Idaho.

Tenor Garin Fuhriman, a sophomore from Boise, Idaho, won first place in the college tenor solo division. He was invited to perform at the evening concert with several professional jazz musicians and in front of an audience of nearly 3,000. Three members of the vocal combo also competed in the vocal solo competition.

These musicians represent some of the best talent the BYU School of Music has to offer, said Kristie Arnold, vocal jazz director for the BYU School of Music.

The Vocal Jazz Combo, Garin and other performers will appear at the BYU Jazz Festival Thursday (March 6) at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.
