Pius XI Vocal Jazz Night @ Wendy Joy Lindsey Theater
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm

The Pius XI Vocal Jazz Night is celebrating its third year, and we are extremely excited to be returning home to the Father Robert V. Carney Performing Arts Center for this annual event. Come and witness the transformation of the space into a cool nightclub and sit ON the stage to enjoy the intimate, cabaret ambiance. Students from the vocal jazz ensemble work with and are accompanied by esteemed local musicians on solo songs for this great night of jazz. The students work hard for several weeks to gain an understanding of the jazz style, dabble in improvisation and work on fine-tuning their ears to new harmonies. They will even treat you to some of their ensemble pieces — which have been sent on to the State WSMA Solo/Ensemble competition this year.

This year’s guest artists include: vocal coach Ellen Winters Reynolds, pianist Sam Steffke, bassist Jon Blessing and internationally renowned jazz vocalist, saxophonist and music director Joe Turano (a 1969 Pius XI alum!). We look forward to providing friends, family and the community with a stellar night of music, snacks, and a cash bar courtesy of Last Call Beverages.
