Big Red Singers, Vocal Jazz ready to energize

The Big Red Singers and the Vocal Jazz Ensemble will each take to the Kimball Recital Hall stage on December 10 at 7:30 pm. as part of a University of Nebraska-Lincoln Glenn Korff School of Music performance.

The Big Red Singers will take the stage to present an electrifying performance of energizing and uplifting music. The show will include the music of Cher, Justin Timberlake, and many others, as well as featuring outstanding student-soloists, a fantastic show band, and the world-premiere of an arrangement of Kevin Rudolf’s “Welcome To The World.”

The fifteen-voice UNL Vocal Jazz Ensemble will present several jazz standards, many of which will be accompanied by their rhythm section. Their set will include Harry Connick Jr.’s We Are In Love, from his multi-platinum and Grammy award winning 1990 album of the same name. They will also cover the contemporary a cappella song I Need You by True Image. A musical highlight the evening will be the performance of two a cappella ballads that have become staples of the vocal jazz ensemble repertoire, Steve Zegree’s beautiful arrangement of Embraceable You and a wistful arrangement of I’ll Be Seeing You by Phil Mattson. The group is very excited to premiere a brand new arrangement of Lullaby of Birdland by group member and Master’s in Composition major Charlie Wulke. They will conclude with a funk version of Route 66 arranged by Vijay Singh.

Cost for the event is General Admission $5; Student/Seniors $3. The performance will also be live webcast. Visit the night of the event.
