LVA Vocal Jazz / A Cappella

Vocal Jazz / A Cappella is a class for the energetic and willing singer. This ensemble performs in two major concerts a year at LVA, along with Crazy For You, and multiple performing engagements in the community. The harmonies and rhythms can be very challenging, so music literacy is a must! We work on solo and group performance techniques in and outside of class. Much of the year is also spent on jazz improvisation, theory and history.

You must audition to be a member of the class. It is only open to 10-12th graders.

There are three ensembles of 12 members each. They all work on A Cappella and Vocal Jazz repertoire, as well as performance techniques – through ensemble and solo performance. The groups are directed by Mrs. Franke and “Coach” Paul Sperrazza.
