TROY Vocal Jazz ensemble presents fall concert Nov. 28

November 17, 2017

Troy University’s Vocal Jazz ensemble, “frequency,” will perform its fall concert Tuesday night, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Long Hall choral room.

The free concert is open to the public and features a variety of songs performed by a group of 14 TROY students.

“We often call the members of this dynamic vocal jazz ensemble our ‘frequency family,’” said Dr. Diane Orlofsky, frequency’s director. “We were able to retain 10 musicians from last year’s group and also added four new voices this year who have seamlessly integrated and enhanced our signature frequency sound. Because of this, we could prepare an energetic and varied program — one that offers something for every taste and preference.”

Some of the selections include vocal jazz arrangements of familiar tunes like “Almost Like Being in Love,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and “Signed, Sealed and Delivered, I’m Yours.”

Created in 2009, frequency has worked with nationally known vocal jazz artists since its inception.

“Frequency is open by audition to students of all majors,” Orlofsky said. “Frequency truly represents a cross-section of the talented student population that we have at TROY University. I hope the house will be packed in support of this fine ensemble.”
