The Nancy Kelly Vocal Jazz Jams and Stars of Tomorrow Cabarets give aspiring singers a chance to receive professional one-on-one coaching , tune up their performance credentials and resume, and perform with a live band in public performance. Here’s how it works: On Saturday, Nancy Kelly, internationally known jazz vocalist, will work with participants in a friendly, supportive master-class environment, with professional piano accompaniment. Participants are coached on all elements of song delivery, such as posture, tone, key placement, deportment, and interaction with the audience. School-age participants are usually recommended by their vocal/choral director but the event is open to anyone, including college-age or adults. Vocalists are encouraged to prepare songs from the “Great American Songbook”. For students, the New York State School Music Association (nyssma.org) has a recommended list of songs. On Sunday, participants are invited to return to perform for friends and family and the public in an elegant “Stars of Tomorrow Cabaret” accompanied by the CNY Jazz Trio. The cabaret includes bar service and finger foods, and Nancy Kelly closes out the show with the CNY Jazz Trio! WHERE, WHEN & HOW MUCH There are two sessions! Fall Session is being held on October 24th, 2-5pm and October 25th, 7pm. Spring Session will be held April 16th, 2-5pm and April 17th, 7pm.
