Jazz Voices is an ensemble of eleven vocalists and a four-piece rhythm section, directed by Emily Merrell. The ensemble provides a transformative experience for listeners as they explore traditional and modern jazz repertoire.
“BYU Jazz Voices is a breath of fresh air to audiences of all kinds,” said director Emily Merrell. “This outstanding ensemble is known for its complex harmonies, tight grooves, improvisation and unique combination of vocalists and instrumentalists; there is something here for everyone!”
The audience can expect to hear a wide variety of jazz sub-genres including blues, swing, bebop, Latin, funk, and fusion—all delivered with the honest and evocative story-telling and lyric interpretation essential to the vocal jazz tradition.
