CSUS Vocal Jazz teams up with Rhiannon

California State University, Sacramento Vocal Jazz is teaming up with singer/songwriter Rhiannon for their fall performance at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6 in the Music Recital Hall.

Rhiannon is long-time collaborator with Bobby McFerrin. She brings a potent blend of jazz and vocal improvisation along with her musical ensemble Bowl Full of Sound which combines vocals, keyboard and piano.

Vocal Jazz will open with songs that include Dizzy Gillespie's "Jump Did Le Ba," and Paul Simon's "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright," as well as standards like "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing," and "It's Alright With Me."

Last year, CSUS Vocal Jazz was chosen to perform at the Conference of American Choral Directors Association in Honolulu. "We were featured on opening night of the conference and many opportunities are opening up for us because of that recognition," says Julie Adams, director of Vocal Jazz. "This concert with Rhiannon will bring a whole different sense of improvisation to the performance."

Vocal Jazz plans to perform at the Columbia Jazz Festival and Reno Jazz Festival during the spring semester.

Tickets for the Vocal Jazz performance are $8 general and $5 for students and seniors, and are available at the CSUS ticket office at 278-4323, or at the door one hour before the performance.

Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at 278-6156.
