Jan 25th 2013 Jazzlines free gigs Symphony Hall Foyer 5pm
Jazzlines Vocal Series curated by Sara Colman
Introducing the Birmingham Conservatoire Singers
I’m delighted to be able to introduce you to some of the third and fourth year students I’ve been working with at the Birmingham Conservatoire.
This evening’s gig, the second in the Jazzlines Vocal Series, features the very individual voices of Holly Thomas, Lottie Hodgson, Anthony Marsden and Taan Parisse. These talented singers have of course studied the legendary greats of the tradition but they also bring a contemporary viewpoint to their own interpretations and compositions. The influence of musicians such as Kurt Elling, Sidsel Endresen, Sara Serpa, Gretchen Parlato, Norma Winstone and Amy Winehouse is wonderfully evident in this fine group of young jazz singers.
