WP Wind Ensemble Conducted by Dr. J. Craig Davis
Music selections by Peter Jarvis, David Gillingham, Howard Hanson, and Alfred Reed.
Award-winning vocalist Alexis Cole is at the heart of today’s New York jazz vocal and cabaret scene. After graduating from William Paterson in the mid-90s, she became a member and featured vocal soloist with the remarkable jazz big band ensemble at West Point Academy. Today, she has moved on to establish a major reputation as a virtuoso vocalist, in command of a wide array of repertoire and always in touch with the jazz traditions. Today’s backing trio also consists of fellow William Paterson alumni, including two recent arranging master’s degree recipients, pianist/musical director Scott Arcangel, and drummer Joe Spinelli.
Admission: General Public $15 • WP faculty, staff, alumni, and senior citizens $12 • Non-William Paterson students $8 WP students are admitted free. • All tickets are an additional $3 on show day.
Each Jazz Room concert is preceded by a “Sittin’ In” meet-the-artist session one hour prior to performance. Free to all ticket holders. Audience members have a chance to meet and interact with that day’s artist in a question-answer format.
The WP Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Women’s Chorus, and Men’s Chorus will perform the music of Brahms and Schubert, in addition to contemporary choral literature. WP alumna and horn player Erika Arango will perform as guest artist on this concert.
