Fort Morgan, CO. 03/20/14. The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) at Morgan Community College (MCC) announces a joint concert featuring the University of Northern Colorado Voices jazz choir. The performance will also include special musical numbers by the Baker Lake Street Choir and the Fort Morgan High School Singers. The event, previously advertised as occurring at the Fort Morgan Middle School, has been moved to the Glenn Miller Auditorium at Fort Morgan High School on Sunday, April 6 at 7 p.m.
“In the tradition of the many critically acclaimed vocal jazz groups at the University of Northern Colorado, the Northern Colorado Voices is Colorado’s top student vocal jazz group,” says The Contemporary A Cappella Society of America (CASA). Directed by Kerry Marsh, Professor of Music at UNC, the Northern Colorado Voices feature an incredibly diversified sense of style and musical prowess, singing everything from straight-ahead jazz tunes to a cappella pop arrangements.
UNC’s vocal jazz groups have performed throughout the United States and Europe and have received numerous awards, including a coveted Grammy nomination and several Down Beat Student Music Awards. The Northern Colorado Voices was named a regional finalist in the Harmony Sweepstakes, a national competition for professional a cappella groups.
During the afternoon before the April 6 concert, Kerry Marsh and members of the Northern Colorado Voices will be conducting vocal jazz clinics with students from the Baker Lake Street Choir and the Fort Morgan High Singers. All three groups will sing together in a joint number during the 7:00 p.m. concert.
The concert is a family-friendly performance that is free and open to the public.
