Avante Vocal Jazz

Avante Vocal JazzAvante Vocal Jazz was founded in 2010 with the objective of fusing contemporary A Cappella with the art form of vocal jazz. Based in Raleigh NC, the eight singers of Avante perform a unique repertoire ranging from contemporary choral works to
cutting edge jazz with a modern flair. Routinely praised for its high standard of musicianship and unique arrangements, Avante tours the United States, appearing in concert, corporate venues and on college campuses. Avante’s educational outreach provides workshops to students of all ages and boasts two nationally regarded clinicians within its membership. Avante will be joined by local high school chorus groups, community performance ensembles as well as select soloists for Baba Yetu as a culmination of the JCC Chorale Clinics held in conjunction with the National Endowment for the Arts grant.

Avante will direct a two day workshop in conjunction with their evening performance that is designed to go far beyond the traditional choral competition festival. Students will have the opportunity to perform in a workshop environment, with a tailored master class immediately following the group's performance. Each group will then perform with Avante Vocal Jazz on Tuesday, February 25th.

This workshop opportunity is open to all community soloists and performance groups regardless of expertise. If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please contact Dennis DeJong at (919) 209-2212 or d_dejong@johnstoncc.edu. This project received support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Avante Vocal Jazz will be at the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium on Tuesday, February 24, 2014, beginning at 7pm. Tickets are available by calling the Box Office at (919)209-2099 or online at www.jccperformingarts.com.
