An exciting opportunity for our Vocal Jazz ensemble! All members are expected to attend as we will be learning a LOT of music at this retreat! We will be spending the day from 10-4pm at UVic in the music wing (stay tuned for maps and parking information) on Saturday, February 17. Students will need to make their way to UVic on their own, if it is an issue let me know and I can drive at least 3 people over from Reynolds. We will all meet in front of the music wing until everyone arrives.
We will start the day watching a performance from Fifth Street in room B037 at 10:15am. They are a local a cappella group that originated within the UVic Vocal Jazz Program. Then we will break into small groups to learn music with a member of Fifth Street. They will also be hosting an improv session with our students that day as well – it is going to be a fantastic day for our singers!
I will be providing pizza for the group from 3-4 at UVic. This is a free event that UVic and Fifth Street are providing for us, including use of the space at UVic and the workshops being put on. Students will need to be picked up at 4 pm outside of the music building or catching the bus is easy from UVic as well. If rides are an issue let me know and I’ll help out wherever I can! Looking forward to a fantastic day of music making!
