University of Mary Vocal Jazz
Vocal Jazz is a select vocal ensemble that performs a variety of contemporary music, mostly in the a cappella genre.
From jazz standards, such as Route 66, Birdland, Orange Colored Sky, and It Don't Mean a Thing, to popular hits like Walkin’ on Broken Glass, Hide and Seek, I Run to You, Aha!, Counting Stars, and Ticket to Ride, VJ brings musical excellence and high energy to every performance. Directed by Dr. Tom Porter, VJ is one of the featured ensembles at UMary Jazz Festival, and performs at a number of campus and community events each year.
Open auditions for VJ take place during the first week of fall semester; members also sing in Concert Choir.
